Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★

Riz Ahmed is excellent as a drummer who lost his hearing. The sound design brilliantly captures what hearing loss must be like with muffled or distorted noises or complete silence being used for extended periods of time to show Ruben’s experiences. The film seemed a bit overlong but whenever it started to drag a bit it rallied and brought in one of the best scenes of the film.
