Sound It Out (12A)


A documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, in the North East of England. Starring Tom, Kelly, David, Daniel, 70,000 records and the good people of Teesside. A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, obsession and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.

The critical consensus

Proof that, in the right hands, documentaries boast as much heart as any feature. This one got soul too. Wonderful.

****(*)Ian Nathan, Empire Online, 31/10/2011

A cheap and cheerful documentary about a properly endangered species: the record shop.

***(*)(*)Andrew Pulver, The Guardian, 03/11/2011

It's a delightful, real-life version of Nick Hornby's novel High Fidelity, a song of love, sadness and mortality with everyone involved doing it their way as they face the vinyl curtain.

Philip French, The Observer, 06/11/2011

As well as crafting an insightful portrait of a specific place, Findlay effectively captures the moment of transition that record collectors worldwide are in, as the physical, tangible aspect of owning music gradually disappears. Highly recommended.
