Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★½

53/100

Dragged quite a bit in the middle for me which holds it back from love, but I definitely enjoyed this overall. Ahmed is great, probably around the 5-10 best performances of 2020, and lays the foundation for a simple, but effective character study. The emotions of him coupled with the unique sound design provide for an immersive experience that puts you inside the lead's head. There's some criticism I've read regarding the use of implants which is pretty informative, so I'll link it here. Anyways, solid movie that accomplishes its goals well.
