Sound of Noise

Breaking the law never sounded so sweet.


Comedy

Rod Lott
One man's symphony is another's pollution, and to police inspector Amadeus Warnebring (Bengt Nilsson), head of the department's anti-terrorism unit, no music is good music. Although coming from a family of musicians, he's tone-deaf. Notes make his ears bleed, literally.

It has been at the center of controversy for its depiction of U.S. intelligence agents using “enhanced interrogation techniques,” otherwise known as torture.
