Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½

Perfect Stillness

Definitely not what I was expecting, but happily surprised. A visceral viewing experience that puts the viewer in the point of view of someone losing their hearing. Riz Ahmed is absolutely incredible as the former addict and metal drummer who’s trying to cope with rapid hearing loss. The film really takes its time telling its story, and its pacing is quite methodical. It’s a tender and touching story that I honestly did not see coming. With the unbelievable sound design and a beautifully poetic ending, this is definitely one of the best films 2020 has to offer.
