    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★½

    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.

    The Borderlands

    ★★★★★

    Absolutely criminal that this is the only Elliot Goldner feature. After around 15 viewings I’m concluding that The Borderlands is practically perfect, and I’m very aware that I am part of a small minutia. It’s a rarity that I’d want a film to be longer, but it always has this capacity to really fuck with me and I only wish there was more.
