Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★½

There are narrative and pacing issues I can’t look pass despite the outstanding and clear message. It isn’t as one note as I feared it would be, and doesn’t preach anything in an overwhelming way. Especially with an ending full of stillness, I can’t complain too much. There’s also no argument that Riz Ahmed carries this entire film well with full force. 

Picky note: their music appears more punk than metal but I know it’s very much besides the point of the whole idea.
