Indie Gems: Sound of My Voice

You will not get this movie out of your head.

Peter (Christopher Denham) and his girlfriend Lorna (Nicole Vicius) are trying to make an undercover documentary on a suspicious cult who's leader,Maggie (Brit Marling) claims to be from the future. 

Brit Marling's films have a bit of a trend, their endings are often left open for us to decide what happens next. This film is no exception. We're given hints here and there, but ever full on answers. In a way, it drives me crazy, because just when I think I have a solid theory on what Maggie is really all about, something else throws a wrench in it. But that frustration is what makes this film SO intriguing. I can't stop thinking about it days later. 

Christopher Denham is a fascinating actor. He's someone who I hope to see in more films, he's absolutely captivating here. Especially in his scenes with Marling. I know i called this film frustrating, but I mean that in the best way possible. I can't recommend this film enough.

Grade: A

  1. While I didn't like this as much as Another Earth, I have to say that this was another great offering from Marling. I'm so excited for where her career goes. Great write up!

    1. I think that or her screenplay would've been worthy nominations.
