Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½

Powerful performance from Ahmed, and remarkable use of sound design to amplify the experience. My hearing has never been great so I watch everything subtitled and the way that those are missing and then slowly increased as Ruben picks up more sign language is another simple, clever tactic to wrap you up in his experience. Such a thoughtful experience, painful, but nonetheless hopeful without resorting to some cliched, grand conclusion.
