Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★★½

2 months ago I saw the trailer for this movie and a month later I went to watch mogul mowgli. for some reason I thought this is what I was watching. 2 movies released in 2020 both starring Riz Ahmed whose plot revolves around a musician lying to himself about the insignificance of his degenerative disease, forcing him to compromise his music career???? I honestly thought they were the same film?? can you blame me? i was actually going to complain about how some of the things in the trailer weren’t there ......... . anyway I got so excited when i discovered this one was another movie and wow what a beautiful piece of cinema it was. mr riz is coming for that golden statuette. i really wish i could’ve seen this on the big screen — the distorted sound would’ve been a crazy experience
