Maggie claims to be from the year 2054 and is seemingly allergic to almost everything in her environment; she lives in a basement, subsisting on canned oxygen, homegrown food and the blood of her acolytes.

      Stoner J Interesting enough to watch but a completely incomplete and lackluster ending! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Raul M Astonishing Jesus Christ updated story Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review Sam L An extraordinary film. Brilliantly acted, and filmed, it's atmospheric, and mysterious, and plays it cards close to the vest. I think the main reason for a lot of the bad reviews is a dislike of an ending that feels like a letdown. It's actually a brilliant and perfect ending and a gut punch, but, like every other Marling/Batmanglij piece, you have to let go of expectations, let the film absorb you, and be comfortable with ambiguity and paradox. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/08/23 Full Review Jeremy L Everything Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij collaborate on turns to experimental though entrancing and accessible gold. The theme of time travel and the cultish exploration of time travel seem to be the zoomed focus of The OA as much as Sound Of My Voice.. and I just want more. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/16/23 Full Review Elle I Loved this film. If you love psychological mind benders with surprise endings, this one's for you. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/23/23 Full Review KEVIN C A couple of documentary filmmakers infiltrate a secret cult with a hidden camera in order to expose the group and their leader who claims to be from the future. Really interesting and engaging story makes you forget the low budget. Not that it looks bad or anything, but it's mostly filmed in one main location which works for the claustrophobic feeling of being held in the throes of the cult. I enjoyed this one.

      Scott Foundas Film Comment Magazine Sound of My Voice is a too-rare example of intelligent, ambitious genre filmmaking. Jun 20, 2013 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) Either Maggie is the real deal, or she's lying, or we never find out. In any case, anticlimax seems inevitable. Rated: 3/5 Nov 22, 2012 Full Review Tim Robey Daily Telegraph (UK) [A] bumpy but watchable cult-penetration thriller. Rated: 3/5 Aug 3, 2012 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Walks the fine line of something psychological and supernatural, not only keeping the audience invested throughout, but also delivers a fulfilling explanation for the mysterious situation. Rated: 4/5 Sep 22, 2023 Full Review David Reddish Queerty As with much of Marlings work, audiences can read all the plot points of the movie in more than one way, which only adds to the hypnotic, beguiling quality of the story. But, as with many of lifes questions, the mystery might be an answer unto itself. Rated: 3.5/4 Mar 20, 2022 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension Sound of My Voice is the first feature from a young director and these drawbacks are indicative of that greenness. Still, Batmanglij has made a better-than-average genre film that does exactly what genre films are supposed to do. Mar 4, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
