Movie Theater on 'Interstellar' Sound Complaints: Take It Up With Christopher Nolan

A good filmmaker will know that his movie is 50% picture & 50% sound. I have spent my 30+ years in motion picture sound, creating excellent sound for feature films. I am proud of my critical listening. I didn't understand about 70% of the dialogue in "INTERSTELLAR". It was so frustrating. It's a Christopher Nolan signature. All of his movies are undecipherable. Richard King is a brilliant Supervisor. Gregg Landaker and Gary Rizzo are terrific Re-Recording Mixers. I'll bet if they did the mix themselves, it would be amazing… It's ultimately up to the Director and Producer. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/movie-theater-blames-christopher-n...

It just proves how crucial sound is for your movie… big and small. No one says a peep when it's great sound, the kudos' are dispersed to the picture side and acting, even if picture & acting are just so-so… and we know by this, we've done our job well and we soundies pat each other on the backs for a job well done. But there is no 'so-so' in the world of sound in picture, if the sound is being noticed as even just 'so-so', take cover, everyone will be angry at the sound people. Especially other sound people! In this case, Nolan is indeed the culprit for his movie's hot mix here. http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/critics-notebook-interstel...

If I wrote dialogue like that I wouldn't want anyone to hear it either.

I thought I was losing my hearing, then realized the so-called music was drowning out the dialogue. Worst sound mixing I've ever heard. Then I thought the theater was only using one speaker and blamed Showcase. Not so. Then I decided I could watch it someday on Netflix with subtitles. LOL. Glad to know it wasn't just me. I loved the movie but the sound was criminal!
