Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½

Rewatching this film in a cinema is a totally different experience than watching at home on a TV.

The genius sound design is front and centre and you really feel every single sound wether it be a fly in the background or a truck zooming by you feel it and the last 30 mins with the implant pulls you into the mind of Ruben so perfectly and really makes the ending hit so much harder.

Riz ahmed, Paul raci and Olivia Cooke's performances hit so hard, every single one of them has a moment to make you cry and they succeed. I picked up on many more slight details in the writing and cinematography.

I also noticed that the pacing is much slower than I remembered which does slightly bring the overall rating but i still love this, definitely one of the best of 2020.

I urge to watch this in the cinema, you will not regret it.
