While my official review doesn’t hit until Friday, it’s safe to say that I pretty much love Sound Of My Voice. It’s a small, but very effective, thriller with some genuinely creepy moments. It also gives you a lot to think about and asks some interesting questions about the nature of belief itself – not necessarily religious belief (though it can be interpreted that way), but the mechanics behind what we accept as fact and reject as fiction.
Last week I sat down with Zal Batmanglij, the film’s director and co-writer, to talk about cults, the nature of belief and debunking, long (intense) scenes and crafting the film in general.
In the R-rated thriller from director Zal Batmanglij, “Peter (Christopher Denham) and Lorna (Nicole Vicius), a couple and documentary filmmaking team, infiltrate a mysterious group led by an enigmatic young woman named Maggie (Brit Marling). Intent on exposing her as a charlatan and freeing the followers from her grip, Peter and Lorna start to question their objective and each other as they unravel the secrets of Maggie’s underworld.”
Sound Of My Voice opens in tomorrow, April 27th. I strongly urge you to seek it out. Head inside for the interview.
