Customer Review

on 6 December 2012
'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.
