The uniquely intellectual drama runs with a soulfully promising story as far as it can go before getting backed into a corner by a director who doesn't know how to handle it.

I can't recall seeing anything last year that approaches its canny psychological clout.

Sometimes you have to hit bottom to see your life clearly for the first time. It's a relatable (if somewhat clichéd) sentiment...

Thanks in major part to the alternately witty and touching script and Sarsgaard's exceptional performance, Tyburski's refined exercise in sight and sound manipulation should find an appreciative audience, though perhaps a small one.

The Sound of Silence is a thoughtful film, though; Sarsgaard is convincingly enigmatic, and observe how good Jones is in this mode, in which her mirth is restrained to a bare minimum.
September 26, 2019
A movie built for Sarsgaard's specific way of acting, and he's strong here, presenting Tyburski with a subtle range of feelings to best support the modest but human goals of the feature.

While not quite a complete experience that sticks the landing, The Sound of Silence is nevertheless an impressive debut from a fresh new filmmaker.
September 25, 2019
There are beautiful qualities at work here, making for a sometimes poignant and harmonious film about the nature of sound and humanity.

..."The Sound of Silence" is a modest, contemplative study of ideas that itself exemplifies those ideas in its design, not least its sound design; it embodies a conceptual rumination.

A major co-star is the sound design, which, fittingly enough, tends to sound like a comforting blanket of white noise.

Lucian is a man with a theory, desperate to extrapolate from what he knows is true to what it might imply, and if you've ever known such a man, you will likely appreciate Sarsgaard's performance

Our environment reflects us, which includes the soundscapes we live in. Food for thought.

[An] ambitious, tonally intriguing comedic drama...
September 13, 2019
Sarsgaard finds an almost sensual serenity in the everyday gravity of his assuredness, even as the film gingerly weaves both a pensive quality and a deadpan wit.
September 12, 2019
"The Sound of Silence," anchored by a superbly modulated performance by the always intriguing Peter Sarsgaard, is fascinating, original and, yes, deeply resonant.
September 12, 2019
Art is supposed to help us see the world in novel ways. The Sound of Silence, in its quietly exhilarating manner, may make us hear it differently, too.
September 12, 2019
A creative exploration of the interactions between humans and the sounds of the things around them.

New York City has a musical quality to all of its chaos. Stand in the right spot in Manhattan and you can hear it. "The Sound of Silence" knows and embraces this.
September 11, 2019
Sarsgaard beautifully suggests preternatural calm as this lone prophet of sonic sanity in the cacaphony of the Big Apple.

[Michael] Tyburski creates a terrific sense of atmosphere... But the story naggingly refuses to come to life, rolling along without generating any sense of momentum or direction. At least the themes keep it intriguing.
