Sound Of Metal (15)
18 June 2021
Riz Ahmed is superb as heavy metal drummer Ruben, hammering out ferocious sets night after night. When he suddenly loses his hearing, his life is thrown into turmoil. In a group home for Deaf addicts, Ruben must choose between his new Deaf community and fighting to hold on to what has always defined him. Director Darius Marder uses innovative sound design to create a powerful soundscape of scrapes and muffles that give you a real sense of Ruben’s sonic experience and interior world; including his utter panic as he is jolted into a new, quieter way of being.
