Sound Of Metal

On the 154th episode of Piecing It Together, film-critic Hannah Hoolihan joins me to talk about one of my favorite movies of the year, Sound Of Metal. It’s a heartbreaking but beautiful story about a drummer who learns that his hearing and his life will never be the same. Puzzle pieces include Whiplash, A Star Is Born, The Wrestler and Million Dollar Baby.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for Sound Of Metal and the movies we discuss!
