Actress/writer Brit Marling starred in and co-wrote Another Earth [DVD]. A low budget character drama with science fictional elements.

Sound of my voice is another low budget movie in which she appears and also had a hand in the writing. This barely got a release at the British Box Office. And it's science fictional elements are very oblique. It's more of a character/suspense drama.

Schoolteacher and would be filmmaker Peter is out to make a documentary about cults. His girlfriend Lorna is assisting him with this. Both are initiated into a cult led by Maggie [Brit Marling] who claims to have come from the future, and that the members of her group are the chosen ones destined to survive dark times ahead.

Neither Peter nor Lorna start out believing anything that Maggie says. But the more time they spend with the cult, the deeper into it they are pulled. And when you're undercover, there are times when you may have to do certain things. How far will they go? And just what is the truth about Maggie?

This is a very low budget piece of film making but it you can suspend your disbelief in regards to that it's fine, because it's all about the characters. And it does use it's settings very well. Maggie remains fascinatingly ambiguous, and there are long moments as she and Peter verbally interact when you are hooked as you can never be sure what is going to happen next, or what precisely either of them are up to.

Peter and Lorna are very strong characters, and you've given background information about them in an interesting manner early on which helps you to get to grips with them quite easily.

Brit Marling is a great actress with a unique style. EASY and ANOTHER EARTH are excellent but this is average,

Brit Marling is a force to be reckoned with. There, I said it.

This is a strange story but it's intriguing and her ability to write perfect endings to movies, and leave you thinking long after you've watched it, is something I think she's going to be known for in the future.

The acting is great, and the tension between all the characters is well played out. You are equally dismissive of Marling's Maggie as you are curious. Throughout the film you'll be sure she's mentally ill, only to think she's completely sane just minutes later. The build up to the final scene is tense and it ends perfectly - highly recommended if you liked Another Earth, as well as other sci-fi films, in particular K-Pax.

Brit Marling's films are kind of 'niche cinema' for the initiated, a little like in this film, the initiated following mysterious guru 'Maggie'. I love what Marling does, one of my favourite film is her other one 'Another Earth', but felt a little frustrated by this one. It is a superb idea, well put through, well acted etc...but cut short at the end. I understand it was meant to be the first part of a trilogy about 'Maggie' and it badly feels like it needs further developments. That said, I totally recommend, as all the other ones of hers, East and Another Earth.

'Sound of My Voice' is a independent low-budget psychological thriller film that was originally conceived as a web series. The feature released in 2011 to critical acclaim and had a limited theatrical release resulting in poor box-office returns.

The story shows how a couple (Christopher Denham & Nicole Vicius), as part of a journalism project start to investigate a cult leader, Maggie (Brit Marling) who claims to be from the future.

I really wanted to like this strange movie, which had an intriguing subject with a science fiction element. However, I just couldn't get into the cult aspect, probably because I didn't like the annoying crap that the character, Maggie was coming out with. It just sounded pathetic.

If you're into character development then this is a fine effort with strong versatile performances from the main three actors. But, that is where it ends. I was left frustrated with too many questions and no answers at all. Nothing is really explored well, even the purpose of the cult. And, just when you thought that was the end of the questions, the ending tops it up with more.

Zal Batmanglij is responsible for the monotonous procession in the direction of the film. Yes, he gets intense performances from the actors. Unfortunately that wasn't enough.

'Sound of My Voice' is unmusical and that's me being polite.

Once again, as in "Another Earth", Brit Marling gives a stunning performance! What is more, the filming is atmospheric and edge-of-your-seat. A must-see. So not-blockbuster.
