This is a solid if unremarkable Belgian thriller about a social media influencer's descent into insanity. Noise explores many themes: suicide, memory, aging, how people can get lost in the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories, mental illness. It's a slow-burn kind of movie, beautifully directed and skillfully acted. Regrettably, the story doesn't quite live up to its promise.

There are jump scares and moments of scary imagery that come across as a way to keep the audience engaged. There are some side stories that don't really go anywhere. It seems like a lot more is going to happen than what actually happens, considering that the first half of the movie is setting everything up. It works for what it is, overall, but it doesn't quite reach a satisfying climax or conclusion.
