• “Silence versus noise was my idea!”: Seann William Scott in Goon

Boy, how I hate getting scooped by my own coworkers. Here I had this great idea for a piece about The Deep Blue Sea, explaining how director Terence Davies strategically uses silence to frame and intensify the sounds and music in his story of a woman (Rachel Weisz) torn between her boring old husband and her virile young lover. Then along comes “Silence vs. Noise Week,” a daily series on the Bleader that’s now already well in progress. I suppose I should make some noise about it, but instead I’ll just keep quiet.
