Christopher Nolan Defends ‘Interstellar’ Over Sound Criticisms


Interstellar director Christopher Nolan is adamant there were no technical issues with the movie despite several reviewers criticizing elements of its sound.

The blockbuster faced accusations the sound effects were too loud and left some viewers struggling to hear the dialogue.

However, Nolan insists his use of dramatic sound throughout the film was intentional, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “I’ve always loved films that approach sound in an impressionistic way and that is an unusual approach for a mainstream blockbuster, but I feel it’s the right approach for this experiential film.

“Many of the filmmakers I’ve admired over the years have used sound in bold and adventurous ways. I don’t agree with the idea that you can only achieve clarity through dialogue. Clarity of story, clarity of emotions, I  try to achieve that in a very layered way using all the different things at my disposal – picture and sound.”
