Review: Sound of Metal (2020)

On what is nearly the 9-year anniversary of my website, this review is the first post written by someone other than myself. The author of this review is Arpit Nayak, a good friend of Filmcraziest.com and a regular staff writer at TheMovieBuff.net., where you can read more of his in-depth reviews here. Here's his review of Sound of Metal: The story kicks off with a hard punk music performance in a club. We see the band's drummer, Ruben (Riz Ahmed), playing it all out with lead singer and girlfriend Lou (Olivia Cooke), snarling indistinguishable lyrics at the multitude. You want more of it, but it shifts gears as it pitches into a more piercingly pacific world where the agitation is profound and you can't vigor your way through.
