The Sound of My Voice (2012) is one of the most underrated, sci-fi mind-bogglers of the 21st Century, on par with metaphysical puzzlers like Donnie Darko and 12 Monkeys. The film was co-helmed by Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling; Marling also stars in the film. The duo has also collaborated on the cult thriller The East (2013). The Sound of My Voice is an incredible film that I can’t recommend highly enough.
Now, Batmanglij and Marling are working on a perplexing new project for Netflix. Check out the trailer for The OA below; it’s vastly intriguing!
Official Synopsis: From Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the visionary filmmakers behind Sound of My Voice and The East, comes a powerful, mind-bending tale about identity, human connection and the borders between life and death. The Netflix original series The OA is an odyssey in eight chapters produced in partnership with Plan B Entertainment, Netflix and Anonymous Content. The groundbreaking series offers audiences a singular experience that upends notions about what long-format stories can be.
The OA will be available to stream on Netflix this Friday!
