With my own desire to go into sound design and sound engineering, I feel I could write so much on Sound of Metal both diegetically and non-diegetically, and in time I will. But for now, it’s important for it to sit with me.
Riz Ahmed and Paul Raci are beyond colossal - Riz makes me proud to be born and raised in Sheperds Bush. Darius Marder’s debut direction is subtle and flawless.
There are moments in Sound of Metal that are just so still, and it’s so beautiful to just feel that.
