Although Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland won the People’s Choice Award at TIFF this year and seems to be getting the most buzz coming out of the festival, there has also been a fair amount of praise for Sound of Metal. Riz Ahmed stars as a metal drummer who slowly starts to lose his hearing and is forced to come to terms with the fact that it may not be coming back. Directed by Darius Marder and based on a story by Derek Cianfrance (the two previously collaborated on the screenplay for The Place Beyond the Pines), the film relies heavily on Ahmed’s performance but the sound design is also said to be highly innovative and immersive. Sound of Metal co-stars Olivia Cooke and Mathieu Amalric and it hits select theatres on Nov. 20th before arriving on Amazon Prime on Dec. 4th; check out the trailer below and see what you think.
