        Even the best records start skipping after a while, and once The Sound of Silence gives in to the demands of conventional narrative it begins feeling less fresh and new than it did when it was simply introducing us to Peter and his work.

        The Hollywood Reporter

        Director Michael Tyburski and co-writer Ben Nabors' lyrical character study ... deftly balances the cerebral with the soulful in a story of transfixing originality.

        The characters are compelling, but I would like to have known more about how Peter came to this place in his life.

        A wonderful high concept is compromised for another story of lonely people learning to connect.

        Movie Nation

        The first seventeen minutes of The Sound of Silence plays like the best short film in many a year. It’s compact, provocative and thanks to the serenity of its star, Peter Sarsgaard, and fraught exhaustion of the client (Rashida Jones), draws us in pretty much instantly. It leaves us with a sense of whimsy unexplained — mystery.

        The Sound of Silence is a deeply silly movie that takes itself incredibly seriously, and believe it or not, that’s its great pleasure.

        The Film Stage

        Has a compelling hook ... but the follow-through leaves something to be desired.

        It’s scholarly to the point that it’s bloodless, a dowdy tweed jacket of a film.
