As a writer, Henry Bean is responsible for films about self-destructive protagonists who skirt justice in Deep Cover and Internal Affairs. With his directorial debut, The Believer, he took that character one step further. Now with his newest film, Noise, he moves into the realm of fable. We discuss his holy war: the brain versus the heart.
Based on Bean's own experience of growing sick of the endless car alarms and noises of New York, Noise stars Tim Robbins, whose initial petty vandalism against various sonic offenders, soon escalates into a one man vigilante called "The Rectifier."
