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.

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

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

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

Sound of My Voice is an interesting approach to indie sci-fi and a solid introduction to Batmanglij and Marling as bright new talents.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.

The setting up is better than the working out, and a third act is desperately lacking.
Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph (UK)

[A] bumpy but watchable cult-penetration thriller.

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

Brit Marling's latest film comes up with another interesting idea - in this case, two film-makers infiltrating a cult - that fizzles out infuriatingly.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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

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

Matthew Turner
August 1, 2012
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.
