Sound of My Voice
The pale, otherworldly beauty and charisma of Brit Marling give this wispy oddity a center, almost a soul. She is a mysterious cult leader “from the future,” with a secret agenda. Two amateur filmmakers want to expose her as a fraud, but they feel her power. Zal Batmanglij’s direction imposes an austere L.A. realism that keeps us guessing right through the soft Twilight Zone finish. With Nicole Vicius, Christopher Denham. 2012.
