Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½

Sound of Metal is a great film to go into completely blind, so in the effort of not spoiling anything, I’ll say that it’s certainly a roller-coaster of emotion and energy. From pounding, anxiety-drumming horror and confusion, to unfamiliarity yet serenity and wholesomeness, to complete devastation and heartbreak. It demands a lot but it’s a POWERHOUSE. Riz Ahmed is an absolute beast, the sound design and mixing is on a complete other-level powerful. Raw as fuck, highly recommended.
