Films that Need their Flowers

   The Sound of Metal is a criminally underrated 2019 drama film – but for musicians, it feels more like a horror. The movie follows Ruben, a heavy metal drummer who struggles to come to terms with sudden hearing loss. Riz Ahmed’s acting is incredible, and the Oscars’ failure to recognize this film’s perfection is borderline disrespectful.

   If you’re familiar with the work of Hayao Miyazaki, then you know the love, dedication, and passion he puts into movies he directs. Howl’s Moving Castle is no exception to his list of masterpieces, and losing to movies such as Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit is unquestionably an insult, and testament to the questionable taste of the academy.
