Sound of Metal ★★★★★

Boasts the best first act of any film released this year, but is actually a far less assaulting experience overall than the first act would have you believe. Ahmed gives the best performance of his career hands down (and that’s including his excellent work in The Night Of) and he made me cry three times simply through his facial expressions. Drags slightly at the end of the second act but honestly this is a minor issue considering how compelling the rest of the film is.
