Sound of Metal

Sound of Metal ★★★

It's definitely a dead sentence if life has to take away one of the most prominent sense you have, one that is so vital as it's defining most of the core of your existence in this world.

Riz Ahmed is reckoning that experience with his raw and arresting performance, also he's inciting rage and heartfelt struggle with restrained force.

The film mostly upholds in Ahmed's grip, to the point it will depend too much on him.

Sound of Metal showcases the emotional bagage, but it seems reluctant to explore the internal conflict - how Ruben processes to give up his dream as a musician - to be more gravitating.

Throughout the course, it just imprints more distance for the film, and this missing link prevents Sound of Metal accomplishes to be dramactically satisfying as the way it should be.
