R. Kurt Osenlund
Slant Magazine

No great psychological depths are being plumbed here, which unfortunately, seems to render nil the raison d'Ítre.

This plays like an early George Romero shocker but without Romero's humor or social commentary.

For two-thirds this held my attention but it becomes clear the story is an elaborate tease with no answers or proper third act.

Fascinates and titillates, but never quite persuades.

The bland, jittery visual "realism" can't counteract overheated performances of tin-eared dialogue, which strain for pulp but often land at soap.

Pretentious, self-serving vehicle glorifying Marling. If you can't get hired, write yourself a role where you are worshipped. Make sure you are the only good looking woman in the film with plenty of golden close-ups.

Merely an idea getting warmed up.

"Sound of My Voice'' holds your attention for a while, but fails to build much suspense as it races toward a predictable climax.

None of this really adds up to much beyond an hour-and-a-half or so of vague doubletalk, arbitrary decisions and increasingly annoying frustration.

There's nothing wrong with asking viewers to fill in some holes. But "Sound of My Voice" leaves you dangling, reaching out for something that's just not there.

That the movie is part of a possible trilogy doesn't make up for the thin, underdeveloped feel. But Marling, who weaves a strong spell, will probably keep appearing in our future.

The Age (Australia)

Either Maggie is the real deal, or she's lying, or we never find out. In any case, anticlimax seems inevitable.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

An intriguing new subgenre that might be described as 'Sundance science fiction' continues with this creepy but ultimately unpersuasive film.

Marling underplays her character's charisma to the point of nonexistence.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

It does look like it was made for a buck and a quarter and is sufficiently ambiguous to be taken as profound.

Creative Loafing

The more the film balks at meeting viewers halfway, the more frustrating it becomes, like the Wizard of Oz after he's revealed to be a charlatan. It promises to take us down a yellow brick road toward enlightenment, but it leads us off a cliff instead.

Observer [UK]

The setting up is better than the working out, and a third act is desperately lacking.

For those who aren't burdened by such things, the loopy, off-kilter pace and frontal-lobe frying provide their own unconventional pleasures.

Marling seems less in danger of creating the same part over and over again than the same movie.

This is the kind of picture that may often make you snort audibly, even as you're wondering how the heck it's going to resolve itself.
