  1. I’m much impressed by good sound design in general as an art all its own, but I’m even more keen on a sci-fi soundtrack that serves up so much pipe organ. The instrument is a beast and should be wrung out more often, especially with music that’s not part of a liturgy. I’m buyin’ it.

  2. At times this movie was so quiet that when I saw it I noticed the sound of 440 people chewing on popcorn and snacks and drinking soft drinks, that was annoying..

    The sound designers of the big movies today is working with sound just like electroacoustic composers, they are telling a story through sound. The only differenece is they have a big audience. But the movie soundtrack sadly often overshadows the sound fx.

    For this movie, it had been cool if they released the sound design soundtrack to allow us to really listen to it.

  3. I couldn’t connect with the story and charachters in this movie, there is something in the Nolan’s storytelling that doesn’t work for me, but I must admit that technically the movie is brilliant.

    1. His movies are always intelligently written and thoughtfully crafted, but with the exception of Dark Knight, they seem to be missing ‘heart’. You don’t end up caring that much about the characters.

      Nevertheless, i still think of his movies as ‘must see’ films, and this one looks like no exception!
