Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★

I’m sure my response to it would have been very different if a fire alarm had not gone off in the middle of it, but it’s a film that certainly sits with you. It’s all about the execution - Ahmed is just astounding, and the sound design is a marvel, even more so than the premise would suggest. Maybe I’ll give it another try and see if it hits harder without having to evacuate the building halfway through.
