#903: White Noise / Top 5 Noah Baumbach Characters
With the help of regular collaborators Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig, Noah Baumbach leaves the big city - and reality - behind for his ambitious adaptation of Don DeLillo's WHITE NOISE. An absurdist meditation on death nested in a consumerist satire (or vice versa?) that riffs on Elvis, Hitler, car crashes, pharmaceuticals, marriage, and family life, Adam and Josh agree that Baumbach's big swing is a mostly successful one. Also on the show, a revisit of 2017's Top 5 Noah Baumbach Characters (originally paired with "The Meyerowitz Stories") and thoughts on the passing of five-time Oscar-nominated cinematographer Owen Roizman.
