Terry Hunter reviews SOUND OF METAL

A new Amazon movie called SOUND OF METAL tells the story of a young musician who suddenly loses his hearing. It’s a sensitive and heartfelt film about this man’s struggle to come to terms with that loss. The acting is great and the creative sound design makes us experience a little of what it must be like to be deaf. At times, the sound track delivers only silence and the muffled sounds that Ruben hears which makes the film a little hard to watch. There’s also also plenty of cursing. But if you want to see a powerful, realistic drama and learn a lot about hearing loss, SOUND OF METAL is a winner.
