Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★

This involving, Oscar-nominated drama features an excellent performance by Riz Ahmed as a heavy metal drummer who suffers from the sudden loss of most of his hearing. The film's sound design is appropriately impressive and really immerses the viewer in the world that the character has involuntarily been thrust into.

The story ends on a surprising note that manages to offer a way forward for its character without resorting to false contrivances.
