Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★★

Phenomenal performance by Riz Ahmed. Riz Ahmed you deserve this oscar. I could feel the desperation in his voice during that scene where he was locked in the room with paper and pen. His acting was phenomenal. I truly felt the frustration, anger, and his unwillingness to accept reality from his loss of hearing especially when the scenes would switch to his perspective and the sound was muted/muffled. I can’t imagine what losing your hearing and not being able to do the thing you love most feels like. I would not be able to live without hearing sounds or the way a melody resonates with me, whether the sounds of nature, a symphony, soundtrack, or chorus to a song I can’t get out of my head. Music is a part of me and the loss of it is portrayed so well, but also the beauty of entering a different world and support from a community who has dealt with the same thing. The end scene when he is able to find serenity in the silence is profound.

You’ve become very important to a lot of people around here.”

also, that youth of today hoodie!
