Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★★

A very effective character driven movie about someone learning how to navigate their new walk of life. Riz Ahmed is great in this role. The way he expresses a variety of emotions is so unique. Glad it was not just angry outburst. The camera is always following him in new ways to help us understand how he is beginning to manage his new situation that he is unfamiliar with. The camera is always capturing some in each frame. Each frame containing context that helps us understand the decisions Riz’s character makes later. The usage of sound in the movie is so damn effective here. The sound in combination with Riz Ahmed’s performance really helps us get somewhat of an understanding of what he is experiencing. Especially with how the camera captures so much empathy on the screen! Highly recommend checking out!  😊
