It seems it's not just moviegoers who have a problem with the sound in Christopher Nolan's films!

In an excerpt from a new book about the director's filmography, Nolan reveals that a number of fellow filmmakers called him to tell him that they couldn't make out all of the dialogue in Interstellar.

"I actually got calls from other filmmakers who would say, ‘I just saw your film, and the dialogue is inaudible.’ Some people thought maybe the music’s too loud, but the truth was it was kind of the whole enchilada of how we had chosen to mix it."

People have been complaining about the audio mix in Nolan's films for years, but it really became an issue with his latest directorial venture, Tenet, because the plot of the sci-fi actioner would be difficult to follow even if you could hear what the characters were saying to each other.

Nolan doesn't seem to view this as a problem, however.

"I was a little shocked to realize how conservative people are when it comes to sound. Because you can make a film that looks like anything, you can shoot on your iPhone, no one’s going to complain. But if you mix the sound a certain way, or if you use certain sub-frequencies, people get up in arms."

Yes, people do like to be able to follow what's happening in the movie they're watching. Funny that.

What do you guys think? Have you had issues with the sound in Nolan's movies, or have you always been able to make out his dialogue?
