    Aronson has created a masterpiece with this docudrama. I love this film for its impartiality and how it allows pro- and anti-cochlear implant people to see the other side. It is wonderfully executed with sensitivity to D/deaf and hearing communities alike. Excellent teaching aid for Deaf Ed or other Education programs.

    Sound and Fury is among the best human interest documentaries that I've enjoyed despite it having identity politics as a primary theme. The producers had the unique opportunity to follow two brothers, both parents of deaf children, and explore how different values led to different decisions.

    Aronson's intriguing, complicated and well-filmed documentary will keep you talking for days.
  2. The real revelation of Sound and Fury is how it introduces hearing people to a culture they insist on ignoring.
  3. Both intellectually absorbing and emotionally gripping.
