It is easy to forget that films are composed of sight and sound – we always focus on the looking, not the listening. Fortunately, this authoritative and compelling documentary redresses that balance, with a wide range of examples from films you love and films you’ve never heard of, illustrating the importance of sound as well as revealing the means by which it is achieved. Those appearing are the crème de la crème, such as Spielberg, Lucas, Lynch, Nolan, Redford, and Streisand. You’ll never listen to films the same way again.
