I want to shop at the A&P in the White Noise movie

Somebody posted a gif or something on one of the social media micro-blogging sites. There are so many now. (I think it was Merlin Mann.) It was a scene from White Noise in a grocery store (no spoilers) which inspired a viewing this evening.

The book this film is based on was a favorite when I read it in the 90’s. Thing is, I honestly don’t remember why or what it was about. A blurb on my old favorite books page doesn’t help much.

It felt like a very literary film bordering on stage play, which can also mean complicated and wooden for someone feeling fidgety. But the visuals are super fun — every frame is chock full of 80’s details.

All the density makes me want to revisit the book, or maybe the Cliff’s Notes.
