  • Marder hasn't filled in the dramatic interior of what does happen. He has made a movie about deafness that's at once experiential and too muffled to hear.

  • It's a curious confection and not one destined to have much of a commercial life - a shame, because Ahmed is on top form.

  • Sound of Metal might be working from an old playbook, but it finds new ways to liven it up.

  • But even when the cultural politics are explicit, Ahmed's performance and a sure-footed script by Marder and his brother Abraham ensure that this remains one man's story - and one that should be warmly welcomed at arthouses.
