Editorial Reviews

Brit Marling is "intoxicating" (The Huffington Post) and "stirring" (PEOPLE) in the year's most talked-about psychological thriller. A filmmaker (Christopher Denham) and his girlfriend (Nicole Vicius) set out to expose the beautiful leader of a cult (Marling), who claims to be from the future. But the more they explore, the more danger they face in this ""an intricate and taut thriller" (Claudia Puig, USA Today) from writer-actress Marling and writer-director Zal Batmanglij.

Customer Reviews

Very well acted and great writing.

I have no problem with open-ended movies, until now I rather liked them, but like I said before it leaves you with two choices and neither of them make any sense.

Nonetheless, Abigail may indeed be Maggie's daughter and old lost memories may be breaking into her consciousness.

"Sound of My Voice" (85 min.) brings the story of Peter (played by Christopher Denham) and his girlfriend Lorna, who in true "investigative journalism" mode are infiltrating a small cult of some sort, with a view of making a documentary to expose the cult. The cult is led by a young woman called Maggie (played by Brit Marling), who claims to be from "54", as in... 2054. (Please don't ask yoursel how Peter and Lorna found out about this new small cult or how they were able to infiltrate it, it is never explained in the movie.) The cult seems to be made up of about 10 people who are brought blind-folded to the basement of a non-descript house somewhere in Los Angeles.

In his "other" life, Peter is a substitute teacher of an all-girl class of 8 year olds. At a key point in the movie Maggie asks Peter to bring one specific girl from his class to her. How did Maggie know of this girl? Will Peter give in to this request, which amounts to kidnapping? To say much more about the plot would be to ruin your viewing experience. I thought this movie, which clearly was made on a nickel and a dime, was done quite nicely. There is a certain amount of tension from the very beginning that doesn't let up at all until the end of the movie (when Hot Chip's Thieves of the Night plays over the end credits).

Special kudos to Zal Batmanglij (director and co-writer) and of course also to Brit Marling, who also co-wrote the script for this movie. This movie is MILES away from your typical Hollywood main fare. I have no idea why it took over a year for this movie to be released in the theatre (it created quite a buzz when it premiered at the 2011 SXSW film festival), but better later than never I suppose. If you are in the mood for a good indie movie, I can readily recommend "Sound of My Voice".

Having seen and been impressed by Brit Marling's other work Another Earth, it was with some enthusiasm I ventured forth to see this movie. As much as Another Earth has the ability to put on the appearance of being a bigger than Indie movie, The Sound of My Voice is clearly in the Indie tradition, and perhaps the reality tradition, yet manages to convey a sense of the mystical as well.

A documentary filmmaker Peter, and his girlfriend penetrate the mysterious, inner workings of a cult. The members shower, are blindfolded, and driven to a secret meeting place. He is a schoolteacher with dreams of being a director. The mysterious and charismatic cult leader Maggie played by Brit Marling, has returned from the future, to save a select group of people, her followers. She breathes through a tube in the nose, yet occasionally removes the tube and seems to breathe with no bother.

How one can get a camera in without being seen, and film without being noticed is a rather interesting question.

On the surface she seems genuine and legit, though, if you're like me you will wonder, if she is a deluded soul or something more sinister. She appears to have extraordinary empathic and intuitive powers, yet some of what she does raises questions. She punishes bad behavior, and rewards compliance. I found it rather engaging, as when one member is ejected for asking questions, yet she claims this is not the reason for his ejection.

Yet other members clearly become more compliant when she reacts like this. These tactics appear to work on the Peter, when she makes a very strange request of him, and she alienates him from his girlfriend. Maggie remains a mysterious character even to the end, with some intriguing twists and I loved the end.

Format: DVD
Admittedly I was fascinated with "Another Earth" which featured Brit Marling as an actress and co-writer. She takes another shot here as what could be described as budget-limited indi sci fi. She plays Maggie, the head of a cult in which she claims to have travelled back in time from 2054.

A pair of documentarians (Christopher Denham and Nicole Vicius) infiltrate the cult to get their story. Both obviously skeptical at first, one then the other begin to question their own notions of Maggie's premise of time-travel and her thoughts of what is to come. Things get real interesting when Maggie wants to meet a 7 year old girl who she says is her mother. Yikes!

Maggie's calm demeanor leaves you scratching your head for a while. But she can also be demanding of her followers, subjecting them to numerous "life lessons." In spite of some nice performances, what is missing is the payoff. This is about two-thirds a good movie, but then it all falls apart. While I'm OK with drawing my own conclusions and filling in some blanks when it comes to film plots, you need something to hang on to. This film will probably just slip from memory.

Format: DVD
I was a really big fan of `Another Earth'. I thought it was intriguing and captivating and had so much individuality. It breathed its own air and felt fresh and exciting. With that feeling looming over, and decided that `Sound of My Voice' was going to be a similar film and sunk my teeth in. Conceptually, I really has a lot to offer, but I can't help but think that it didn't develop its themes and its premise in a way that wholly works. It is satisfying up to a certain extent, but the ending (while lavishing in the same ambiguousness that made `Another Earth' so provoking) just doesn't drive home the film's point or narrative in a way that compels me to think much about this after the fact.

It was a letdown of sorts; that ending.

`Sound of My Voice' follows a couple, Peter and Lorna, who have fully immersed themselves in a secret cult in order to expose it as a hoax, as a con. The leader of the cult, a young woman named Maggie, claims to be from the future (the year 2054) and claims that she has been sent to help save the people she loves. Her claims are vague and her purpose is even more vague, something that I took issue with. She kept speaking of a place they were leaving for but never explained in depth or even minor detail what or where that place was. The story takes an interesting turn when it broaches on Peter's home life. A substitute teacher, Maggie preys on this aspect of Peter and asks him to get a girl from his class for her. This is where the film starts to pick up and some of Maggie's intentions are made clear...

Or are they?

That's what I don't get. They flirt with letting you in and then completely pull you back.
