Sound of My Voice
Brit Marling - who wrote and starred in Another Earth, which I really enjoyed earlier this year - strikes again with Sound of My Voice! This film centers upon Peter and Lorna, a couple of wannabe documentary filmmakers, as they infiltrate a local "cult" led by a Maggie (played by Marling), a young women who claims to come from the future. Their motives start out as investigatory and expository, but they morph into something else, eventually causing a rift between the couple, and having much larger potential consequences.
Sound of My Voice was a well-done film, with an interesting story that keeps you guessing until the very end. Is Maggie really from the future? Or is she just a fraud? The ending was a tad abrupt and left me wanting a bit more, even though it does provide some answers. I really enjoyed Sound of My Voice and I hope Brit Marling keeps coming out with more films. 8.5 out of 10.
