Sound of Metal ★★★★★

Perhaps the best sound design of any movie I’ve seen. Perhaps my favorite movie of 2020.

Crazy how similar the story beats (at least thematically) are to those of any number of movies centered around drug addiction. This is almost certainly intentional, and is able to add even more depth and familiarity to a story that feels like it couldn’t possibly be more relatable, despite being about something I will likely never experience.
