The first five minutes of Sound of Metal, filled with the raw sound of rage played out in a punk rock concert, will unsettle audiences. But that cacophonous beginning is an appropriate starting point for the story of one man’s journey to find peace amid tragedy and the pangs of addiction.
The movie, streaming on Amazon, centers on the life of Ruben, a punk rock drummer and recovering heroin addict who’s been clean for four years.
