Movie Review: SOUND OF METAL

Movie Review: SOUND OF METAL


Director: Darius Marder
Starring: Riz Ahmed, Olivia Cooke, Paul Raci, Mathieu Amalric, Lauren Ridloff

Riz Ahmed gives one of the best performances I’ve seen all year in Sound of Metal. Ahmed plays Ruben a heavy metal drummer who tours with his girlfriend Lou played by Olivia Cooke. One day he realizes he can no longer hear. He can’t hear the coffee pot drip, the water running in the shower, or the sound of an audience. He’s reluctant at first but agrees to attend a program for the hearing impaired. As a recovering addict, Ruben struggles accepting his new reality. The film is written and directed by Darius Marder whose credits include The Place Beyond the Pines. It’s now in theaters and will be streaming on Amazon Prime Video December 4.
