Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½

Brilliantly layered debut feature by Darius Marder, Sound of Metal ranks among the best of the year. Riz Ahmed stunned me. Absolutely riveted me in his presentation as a washed out punk rocker turned fully deaf. It creates a world we've had yet to see on film, and turns it on it's head. Any attempt at this point to create a film of this nature will always be second to Sound of Metal. The sound editing/mixing is not normally a quality people point to as a benefit to the accomplishment of a film, but Sound of Metal hinges on that success so much.
