Acted with a subtle nuances throughout, this film's ambiguous ending will elicit much discussion, while the film's delicately handled politics are refreshingly two-sided.

Sound of My Voice is a too-rare example of intelligent, ambitious genre filmmaking.

Sound of My Voice is an eerie film that is completely supported by the performances. It's deliberately vague, which can sometimes be annoying but works fine in this setting.

A cracker of a film about the seductive power of cults... the film rides largely on the haunting, compelling presence of Marling.

Sound of My Voice is an interesting approach to indie sci-fi and a solid introduction to Batmanglij and Marling as bright new talents.

A compelling low-budget film which would have been even better if co-writer Marling could wean herself off an infatuation with infuriating conclusions.

A light puzzler that's not as complex as a rubix cube but more akin to a simple cryptic crossword

This isn't a movie that needs, or even welcomes, neat ends. Rather, it imagines the world as it is: messy, confusing, and rarely ever black and white.

Another thought-provoking fable from Another Earth's Brit Marling.

Argh! Actor and screenwriter Brit Marling has done it again! She's come up with an intriguing science-fictional concept as the basis for an indie arthouse drama -- and she doesn't know what to do with it.

[A] bumpy but watchable cult-penetration thriller.

Proof that you can create nerve-scraping twilight zones without A-list stars or CGI.

A few clumsy but forgivable moments aside, this is a subtle and downright creepy film.

Smartly written, well made and superbly acted indie thriller that makes the most of its low budget and confirms co-writer/star Brit Marling as a talent to watch, though it's slightly let down by a frustrating climax.

It's a small scale movie with some big ideas.

As a thriller, 'Sound of My Voice' tails off and its budget shows. But for Marling it's an impressive calling card.

The duo of Marling and Batmanglij have constructed an engrossing mystery, written, acted and directed with considerable skill.

Batmanglij and Marling have crafted a neat chiller, a no-frills B movie that explores the central conceit with intelligence and wit...

Left me wanting a more convincing ending I could reflect on rather than a story that seemed dubious and invented and coming to a dead-end.

The odd "wait-a-second" feeling that director Zal Batmanglij imbues the film with makes it more memorable than its conventional peers.
