Directed/co-written by Darius Marder, Sound of Metal is a new drama/music film starring Riz Ahmed and about a heavy-metal drummer’s journey through hearing loss.

Additional key cast includes Olivia Cooke and Mathieu Amalric.

I’m very excited by Ahmed’s performance in this one. What this trailer has shown takes me back to his brilliant work in Nightcrawler (2014), alongside Jake Gyllenhaal

The subject matter is also equally intriguing. Particularly since it seems that there are many films about people losing their sight, and Sound of Metal is the only one I’m aware of that focuses on hearing loss.

Lauren Ridloff, Jamie Ghazarian, Chris Perfetti, William Xifaras, Hillary Baack, Paul Raci, Bill Thorpe and Chelsea Lee also star.

Sound of Metal Release Dates: November 20th, 2020 (US)…

In City Of Tiny Lights, the city is modern-day London and Riz Ahmed is a Private Eye on a missing persons case that is far from straight forward. Directed by Pete Travis, Cush Jumbo, James Floyd, Damson Idris and Billie Piper also star.

I first saw and loved Riz Ahmed’s world in Nightcrawler (2014). I haven’t been excited about one of his projects/ characters as much as this movie. May my faith be justified.

City Of Tiny Lights Release Dates: April 7th, 2017 (UK)…

Riz Ahmed, Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn’s latest film Una is based on the playwright David Harrower’s play Blackbird, a story about a young woman’s journey to reclaim her past. After seeing the photo of a man she used to know as a young girl, she tracks him down and shows up unexpectedly…

This I’m curious about because of the talented cast; Riz Ahmed was brilliant in Nightcrawler (2014), Ben Mendelsohn had a great turn in Starred Up (2013)  and last but not least, Rooney Mara, an actress of  only so far seen fully in The Social Network (2010).

Tobias Menzies, Tara Fitgerald and Isobelle Molloy also star.
