Audience Reviews for Sound of My Voice

  • Jun 09, 2015
    Sound of My Voice represents a low-budget indie film that both defies expectations but also fails to elevate them. In it, we find a young couple attempt to infiltrate a bizarre cult that follows a young woman claiming to be from the future. As events unfold, the intrigue widens, and the mystery seems to envelope all involved. It's a character study, a thriller, and a drama. A unique blend of indie of more mainstream suspense dramas, it's a film that deserves to be seen. Despite being an unknown cast, one has to venerate the performances from all involved, especially by its most accomplished actor, the fantastic Brit Marling. She inhibits her role to an extraordinary degree, and brings just the right amount of ambiguity. That ambiguity serves the film well, as it's never predictable, yet does leave us a bit unfulfilled as the ending seems overly artsy and wavering. 3.5/5 Stars

    The ending is a little too ambiguous to be entirely satisfying, but Sound of My Voice is a suspenseful and entertaining indie thriller that further proves that writer/actress Brit Marling and director Zal Batmanglij are a talented duo.

    Marling continues to impress in a role that apparently she penned herself. My expectation is that she will eventually get a strong following...

    What an enjoyment was to watch this psychological thriller directed by Zal Batmanglij . The film was co-written by Batmanglij and Brit Marling, and is set in Los Angeles, where substitute schoolteacher Peter and aspiring writer Lorna, a couple in their twenties, are embarking on their first undercover documentary project. Their subject is a small cult led by the mysterious Maggie. Both Peter and Lorna have personal motivations to expose Maggie as a fraud. But very soon they found that this assignment is not really a simple one. The casting was done superbly and we find outstanding acting abilities of Brit Marling as Maggie and very solid performances from Christopher Denham as Peter Aitken and Nicole Vicius as Lorna Michaelson. If I knew that Sound of My Voice was also named among the Top Indie Films at Festivals in 2011 on IndieWire's criticWIRE. I would watch it much earlier. In September 2012, the film won the Octopus d'Or at the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival, for the best international feature film. Don't worry, it's never too late to enjoy it in full. Great cinematography, wonderful story telling following very smoothly developed screenplay, exciting acting and excellent directing - what more can we ask for?
