Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½

Far and away, the best movie I've seen so far this year. While I'm not Deaf or HoH, muscular dystrophy has taught me many similar lessons relating to inexorably losing almost every single ability I once had, including those that seemed to define me as a person. This movie captures so many complicated emotions so well, and does so while never forsaking authenticity for the siren song of melodrama, that I felt spoken to in the best possible way long before it finally, inevitably exploded the idea of the cure narrative.
