The crossed-out faces are those whom Ishida can't "look straight at/face/am blocking out".

The movie does an excellent job potraying deafness and the struggles people with it face. The question then becomes what is the cause of Shoko's deafness, and can gene therapy possibly help some of those struggling with hearing loss?

I would disagree with that, actually. The way it portrays the whole thing is too melodramatic and generally used to have the MC play knight in shining armor. It feels more like an otaku fantasy than a genuine portrayal of the sort of situations someone with a disability has to deal with.

I think it does a good job of making the average person who normally wouldn't give a cr*p be more sympathetic to someone with that problem. Especially the average person in Japanese society who likes to be mean to anyone unusual. At the very least, it probably helps otaku's be nicer on average.

They graciously avoided turning A Silent Voice into a romance even with Shouko's feelings coming out in the film, and with the infrequency of the fact Shouya is trying to redeem himself it's a level of awkwardness avoided. By the end though it's more than just making it up to a young woman but the capacity to face others head-on. Wikipedia's entry callin' this teen drama don't do it right; it's a story about redemption, change, and self-discovery

There was a scene in the hospital and I think one in Shouko's bedroom (she's older in both scenes) where I thought there was some other medical condition she had or something was getting worse, but it seems like it was for the grandmother and maybe they could've communicated that better. Oh and the final scene where all of Shouya's friends involved in this were flashing through his mind, I would've taken out the uh, slanted eye guy and the other guy since they weren't part of the "healing" process

KyoAni managed to make Shouko's deafness feel like a medical condition instead of a mo point, a herculean feat of direction that absolutely needed to be treated seriously for the story to have the deft hand it did. Nope, the endearing part of her character comes from her communication with everyone else

Best thing about the film though is how meticulously it goes through Shouya's thought process. Not a lot to say because he walks us through it. Final note, I can point to the balcony scene as the film's climax looking back, but when watching it's like the movie has no 3rd act. There's the flashback to when Shouya and Shouko were in elementary school, and then...that's it. The film never has an indication for where you can start expecting it to end except for the final scenes themselves. It implores the viewer to never mentally disengage, pushing audiences to always watch the signs and listen to the silence

No, I'm pretty sure what was going on there was her learning that the hearing in her right ear is completely gone. It's made clear early on in the movie that she can still hear a little bit at least, and the scene in question is shown to take place at the hearing clinic, and is followed first by a shot of her lying in bed, holding her right ear while one of her hearing aids is just lying there next to her, and later on when Ueno shows up they point out that she only has one hearing aid now.

It didn't avoid presenting the MC as some sort of white knight though. Heck, we even had the dramatic scene in which he saves her life and all. These kind of scenes really bring the whole movie down for me.

Another problem is that the movie was ultimately more about the guy than the girl even thought the struggle the girl was going through was much more severe and it would have been more interesting to focus more on her than the guy.

All in all, it was as good movie, but far from the master piece some people think it is. I think Your Name and Maquia are better movies overall.
