White Noise (2022) | Ratings & Reviews

A vision of the creeping awareness of death in middle age that's as frustrating as the real thing—on purpose, we hope? Baumbach's apocalyptic banter is clever and the scene of Adam Driver and Don Cheadle duelling in a uni lecture is tremendous.

"It’s a respectful, and respectable, film to a fault..."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"A story about cutting through the static and learning to settle in silence."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Certainly uneven — wildly so, probably by design — but it’s also never boring, always eager to throw something new at the viewer, and it’s eager to entertain."


"A movie about the American condition, whatever that is, that feels beamed in from the planet of the chuckling beard strokers."

Time MagazineTime Magazine

"Baumbach ensures that the Gladneys are human enough to care about. Their world and their dialogue might be heightened, but their sense of dread and helplessness are poignantly real."


"It’s pitched as a period piece, a post-postmodernist take on the glacial irony of DeLillo’s style, but its manic ironies are an awkward translation of the chilly detachment of the original."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The film rarely articulates the book's ideas with any real sense of the outside world without resorting to the easy exaggerations that Don DeLillo peddled in the name of satire, which, while maybe fresh back in 1985, ring completely hollow today."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"If, like me, you enjoy watching smoothly choreographed sequences of people weaving in and out of rooms, chattering and snacking, or rallying one another to the TV, then the everyday crackle and hum of “White Noise” will be enough."

The New YorkerThe New Yorker

"In very ’80s environs, Baumbach’s film always remains — purposefully, I think -- a self-conscious work of literature adaptation, juggling big themes and highly literate dialogue with a screwball touch."

Associated PressAssociated Press

"An expression of sincere and admirable faith. I just wish I could believe in it."
