Sound of Metal ★★½

WHO WAS HECTOR?

So probably my last new release of 2020, and it's sadly a disappointment. Look, Riz Ahmed has had a phenomenal year - I loved Mogul Mowgli and his sophomore album was really good - but he cannot pull off the accent. He really can't. It's completely distracting and it was also totally unnecessary: he could've just done his normal accent.

I don't know, it didn't really do much for me. I appreciate a movie about deaf people getting so much attention, but I never really cared about the characters. Things just seemed to randomly happen, and there wasn't much sense of time, nor character development. Also, is this movie trying to say that deaf people shouldn't try and cure their disability? Because that seems a really weird message.

But anyway, I love Riz, so I'm just going to leave it there. Goodbye, 2020, overall there were some good movies but still pretty shit.
