Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★½

I didn’t expect a movie called Sound of Metal to be so quiet...

Intimate and isolating, Sound of Metal is a little movie that speaks volumes. It’s not at all what I expected, but in a way, that makes me like it all the more. All the performances here are great, but the use of sound is easily what puts this movie over the top. Definitely the best use of sound this year. It veers into melodrama a bit too much for my liking, and I really wish this movie had a better cinematographer, but overall, I’d recommend Sound of Metal. It rocks.
