Sound of Metal

Truly surprised by this one. I think I was expecting something “edgier” but the filmmaking, direction, writing, and the ACTING. So tender and really grounded performance choices. I really fell in love with the supporting cast in a big way.

I can rewatch all the scenes with Paul Raci on loop. He warms my heart. 

Lauren Ridloff had less juicy scenes but was so charming I immediately had to look her up. Excited to see her in The Eternals now!

Riz Ahmed - 🔥

This bubbled up so many emotions and memories of watching my dad lose his faculties. The fear and denial Ruben felt was so relatable and palpable to me. Seriously, surprised at how much I adore this film. 

(Amazon, fell asleep, finished at 4am when I woke up, still had a lump in my throat for most of the movie)
