Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★½

Naturalistic, honest and extremely respectful to the deaf community. This was just as good as I thought it would be. Riz Ahmed is no surprise here, he further proves that he’s one of the most exciting actors working today. But the absolute best part about this is the sound design. I don’t know what it’s like to be hard of hearing but they made the experience feel really authentic and made some creative choices with it.

Also I think it’s kinda funny that Matthias Schoenaerts was originally going to play this role, and Riz Ahmed looks almost exactly like him in the second half of this.
