“SOUND OF METAL is a thundering achievement of both artistry and empathy. Darius Marder’s immersive masterwork finds new ways to make audiences feel – truly feel – in a story of endless awakenings. The film’s monumental feat in sound design is fully powered by Riz Ahmed’s bold and bravura performance as a man driven to connect, humbled by loss and, ultimately, inspired to embrace the gifts given him – and to all of us – each day.” – The American Film Institute
