Sound Of My Voice will not change your life. Some have made the point about the ending not being clear enough. Well I found it very clear and simple. If a bit quick and sudden. Like the so called charismatic leader of this odd cult. If you believe what she has to say than the ending will be a little unsatisfying. If she is a charlatan than you can take it another way.

As with any low budget, no bells or whistles film. The acting has to be good enough and engrossing enough to keep you interested. In the most part it does. As does the production and the direction. It gives you questions and a few answers and I found the film passed very quickly. I wanted more, so it must have been enjoyable.

A film that would have passed you by unless you were caught up in the cult. Glad it didn't pass me by and for a while I was ready to believe. But not believe it all.

The subject had a certain potential and the ambiguity of it all could have resulted in a far better film.
Unfortunately, it is basically one single idea that does not get fully developed, indulging mostly in uselessly well shot sequences which grow expectations that don't get maintained along the film.
The story does not unfold, but get to a twist and then ends. But here there is not Shyamalan or other masters of twists, just some long waiting for something big to happen, but it happens too late, and I personally do not think that the story has a real development and evolution up to that point.
It takes a plot, a path, an evolution of characters to justify such an ending, otherwise it's better to make a short movie, without forcing the viewer to wait for 1 and half hour to get to that.

I picked this up as a thriller and while I agree with others that there is nothing thriller about this entire movie, it was still very good.

We follow a couple, Lorna and Peter, who have infiltrated an underground cult led by a woman called Maggie, who claims to be from the future and is creating a sect of people to survive the coming civil wars. The couple's intention is to document and expose the fraud of the whole thing, but as the movie goes on they get sucked further and further into the cult's beliefs, carrying out odd and stressful tasks at Maggie's command. Eventually the strain of alternating opinions takes its toll on Lorna and Peter and they end up taking separate routes.

The film truly gripped me all the way through, I honestly couldn't look away. You spend most of the movie second guessing everything happening, wondering about hidden meanings and alternative possibilities. There were no effects, no huge budget stunts, no action, no blood, just a story following the couple documenting the cult and their time within it, and yet the acting and suspense in each scene grips you to the story.

Now I know many have complained about a rather ambiguous ending and I would have to agree, the ending leaves you with a completely open scenario that could have several conclusions; however if you read up on the film you'll see that this was meant to be the first in a series of films about Maggie's cult, and the ending was, in a way, a cliff hanger that would have led us into he next film. However according to anything I could find, noone is sure another film will ever be made. That's a shame, because I would happily watch a second film to this and would follow the series through, as there is a lot of questions I have about various subjects raised in the first.

SOUND OF MY VOICE is a chilling movie about a couple who are secretly trying to film a documentary about a secret cult. The movie follows Peter (Christopher Denham) and Lorna (the stunningly beautiful Nicole Vicius) as they join a cult led by the pretty looking Maggie (Brit Marling) who claims to be from the future. There are some very interesting themes explored, and the tone is very atmospheric thanks to the great cinematograp, pace and direction. The movie ends on an interesting twist, which you can guess quite easily, and has an almost historically religious tone at that point, its almost like a cliff-hanger and I think the film makers planned this as part of a trilogy, which I do hope that complete as the movie left me wanting to know more in a good way. I would give this 5 stars however I've given it 4 because it feels like part of a trilogy, which I'm not sure the film-makers will complete or not. This is a great movie as its fun in both a popcorn Friday night way and as well as being an interesting drama to ponder over.

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.

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.
