  1. Rarely does a movie combine so much genuine human drama with such vivid exemplifications of "identity politics" and other sociocultural issues.

    Riveting tale of family dynamics packed with as much drama, conflict, and poignancy as the best feature film.

    Aronson's intriguing, complicated and well-filmed documentary will keep you talking for days.
  4. 88
    By the time the film is over, you may not feel differently about the key issues than you first did, but you will have many more facts (sound) and opinions (fury) to consider.

    Josh Aronson's thoroughly engrossing documentary Sound and Fury is as much about children's rights as it is about the impact of cochlear-implant technology on a family in which deafness runs through three generations.
  6. The real revelation of Sound and Fury is how it introduces hearing people to a culture they insist on ignoring.
