Shocking the world and making 2020 suck even more than it already did, Chadwick Boseman was announced dead this past August at just 43-years-old. Boseman had been battling colon cancer since 2016, despite continuing to work. What a life, what a career.
Don't try adjusting your set...when you play "Sound of Metal" on streaming, the closed-captioning option is locked to the "on" position. That's just one of the many ways this film will put you in the skin of a person living in the Deaf Community. With a brave, powerful performance by Riz Ahmed, the use of silence in "Sound of Metal" (available on Amazon Prime on 12/4) has never been quite so clear, or as powerfully portrayed.
