“You saved my life.”
Precisely like the sound of metal, Sound of Metal isn’t one to wrap its audience in warm and pleasant feelings. It isn't surprising that Riz Ahmed is the best part of the movie, with his excellent underplayed acting that I admire immensely. The other best part is the fact that the film is so thought provoking as it serves as a window into the deaf culture which is what makes it one of the most underappreciated films of 2020. The journey for Ruben is difficult, lonely, and must be completed. The audience is immersed in the reality of what is happening to him, through the sound (or lack of), which I think is what makes the film so impactful.
The third act of the film is my favorite part of the movie and it is quiet and emotional. This is where Ruben leaves us, and he leaves us beautifully; calm, silent, and finally able to hear himself for the first time in a long while.
You can recommend me films here.
