Sound of Metal

MOVIE SHORT REVIEW

ENGLISH REVIEW

Riz Ahmed shines in the powerful drama Sound of Metal, playing Ruben, a metal drummer whose life is thrown into chaos after he loses his hearing. Olivia Cooke is important but underutilized as Ruben’s bandmate and girlfriend, Lou. Ahmed captures Ruben’s emotional rollercoaster with aplomb, and is matched by Paul Raci, who plays the counselor of the deaf community Ruben is integrating with. Raci’s performance provides a jumping in point for the audience to empathize with Ruben. Debutant director Darius Marder impresses with his camerawork and sound design, creating a vivid experience of Ruben’s loss. Although there are some moments that meander and a melodramatic finale, Sound of Metal is an insightful and often devastating look into the struggles faced by the deaf community.

SPANISH REVIEW

Riz Ahmed brilla en el poderoso drama Sound of Metal, interpretando a Ruben, un baterista de metal cuya vida se ve sumida en el caos despu√©s de perder la audici√≥n. Olivia Cooke es importante pero infrautilizada como compa√Īera de banda y novia de Ruben, Lou. Ahmed captura la monta√Īa rusa emocional de Ruben con aplomo, y Paul Raci, quien interpreta al consejero de la comunidad sorda en la que Ruben se est√° integrando, lo iguala. La actuaci√≥n de Raci proporciona un punto de partida para que la audiencia se identifique con Rub√©n. El director debutante Darius Marder impresiona con su trabajo de c√°mara y dise√Īo de sonido, creando una experiencia v√≠vida de la p√©rdida de Ruben. Aunque hay algunos momentos que serpentean y un final melodram√°tico, Sound of Metal es una mirada perspicaz y, a menudo, devastadora a las luchas que enfrenta la comunidad sorda.
