Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½

Riz Ahmed gives THE performance of the year as Ruben, a drummer who suddenly loses his hearing. My partner, who had no plans to watch it, sat down and couldn't stop watching until the very end (usually he goes to bed earlier). The sound design plugs you right into Ruben's experience.
I feel like this could be my favorite film of 2020. I just finished watching it and need to sleep on it. If I wake up thinking about it, then that'll be my answer.
