Movie Info

After years of listening to blaring car alarms in Manhattan, lawyer David (Tim Robbins) has had enough. Taking to the streets, he begins vandalizing cars with increasing violence, until his wife (Bridget Moynahan) finally kicks him out. As David escalates his campaign against noisy automobiles, he begins leaving stickers identifying himself as "The Rectifier." His actions attract Russian student Ekaterina (Margarita Levieva), who encourages him to campaign for an anti-noise ballot initiative.

    A little comedic gem that asks "what bothers you about society" and then " why aren't you fighting against it?" Not laugh out loud funny, but certainly an interesting afternoon.

    Netflix identifies this as a comedy, but there wasn't a funny frame in the whole film. Even as a dramatic film, it's muddled, as though the director and writer didn't know what the film was about. At the end, neither do I. We're given no reason for Owen's eventual transformation or his obsession, and the motivations of the women around him are equally mysterious. In the end, this is the poorest imitation of Taxi Driver that could possibly be concocted. Although, despite the bad hair piece, William Hurt flawlessly transforms himself into the smarmy, impossible-to-like mayor. Yet another great performance by Hurt in a poor film.

    a interesting role for tim robbins, playing a guy, who cant stand th noises coming from his city, particulary car alarms, so takes it on his own authority to do something about it, going out, and silencing them himself, of course getting him self in trouble, and ruining his family life in process, a good story is told, and his journey, is followed nicely, the film brings up some interesting points and later on towards end, burocracy in action, a well told story

    The social commentary in this movie is brilliant. You got Tim Robbins as the normal every day guy who gets tired of noise. Car alarms are the thing that really sets him off. We have all been there, some jack off has an annoying car alarm and it always goes off but yet nobody cares and it runs for up to 3 minutes before it finally shuts off. At this point you're hoping someone does steal it just to get it away so you don't have to hear it anymore. But back to the important stuff. This movie follows Tim's crusade against the annoying noise that comes with living in a big city. Personally was just another reminder of why NOT to live in a big city because there is all that stuff to deal with. It's a relateable movie although I found myself hating the character of his wife. She was a real piece of work. I found watching his character grow and become more focused and meaningful throughout the movie really made it something special. Watching his early days breaking windows to cut the battery cable all the way to striving to find a more real solution is fun to watch.
