Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★

Drummers are usually the most fun musicians to watch in live music settings (remember those?!) and while live music scenes are fewer here than expected, Riz Ahmed is insanely watchable throughout as he loses his hearing, and learns more about his surrounding world and his place in it because of that. The sound design of this is so great it's reason 1,061 why the Oscars should still nominate movies this year... but is the Academy smart enough to give this movie a chance?
