Excerpt: Brit Marling became the sensation of last year’s Sundance Film Festival thanks to two movies she co-wrote and starred in, Another Earth and Sound of My Voice . Like the more heavily hyped Another Earth , Voice deals with a sci-fi concept in a lo-fi setting, although it’s much more ambiguous about the true nature of what’s happening.
Excerpt: "Sound of My Voice" is thrilling without being a thriller. An intelligent story provides a very broad insight into some of the stranger practices of cults, ranging from lunacy to laughable. All the while though, we remain transfixed as it explores sensitive aspects of the human psyche. Some may find the lack of finality annoying, as the cryptic answers it delivers can be construed or interpreted in a number of uncertain ways.
