Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½


this deserves to win every sound award this coming awards season because i've never "heard" a film like this before, the way it uses sound takes film watching to a whole new level, and completely changes the experience you have
riz ahmed gives arguably my favourite performance of the year so far, he portrays anger, sadness, stubbornness, jealousy, confusion and desperation perfectly, and i really hope he receives all kinds of recognition, because even though the writing, sound design, and supporting performances of olivia cooke and paul raci are brilliant, riz is the reason why i'm going to tell people to watch this, and once again he proves why he is one of the best actors working today
