BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO [2012]

Berberian Sound Studio is an unique slow-burning psychological horror film, starring Toby Jones as a British sound engineer in the 1970's who begins losing his mind as he works on a disturbing Italian slasher flick.
Director Peter Strickland makes the great decision of never allowing the viewer to ever see the film being worked on and only to hear it, making for an unsettling atmosphere within the stark and outlandish studio.  If you have a black sense of humor, a taste for the weird and a love for the technique of filmmaking, this movie will probably be right down your alley.
