Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★

Every aspect of this film is expertly crafted. That’s pretty much all I have to say. It’s well shot, well directed, it has great writing, beautiful performances, and the sound mixing and editing is really great. I was engaged from start to finish and the ending is really great. I’m only taking off points because I wasn’t completely emotionally invested in the story. I liked the characters and wanted them to be happy but it didn’t hit me like some other films. I also kind of wish that when he goes deaf that the sound is cut out all together. That’s kind of a weird thing to be disappointed about but it was a little odd that this film that is completely told from Ruben’s perspective has sound. It felt like it was trying not to be too weird and went half way with some dim sounds. But that is a really small nitpick and I wouldn’t take away any points for that. This is great.
