| Not perfect, but real enough
As a person going deaf, this movie means a bit more to me than the average person. The loss of hearing is a sensory device, a part of us, which when lost is overwhelming to deal with and often debilitating to the point of extreme suffering of the mind.

The Sound of Metal is a good play on words, because the main character has to deal with the loss of his "metal" music, but later that word comes to mean something else which you will need to watch the movie to discover. It is important because it brings to life the idea of what you hear is never the same. When you hear something as a child, but then hear it again fifty years later, the sound you think you hear is not the same but similar enough to evoke memories.

We live in a world of sensory overload. Enjoy the silence when it comes to you.
