A new book gave insights on Nolan’s head while also informing everyone that watching his film Inception on an iPhone is okay.
I wouldn’t say it is okay to find flaws in someone, but I should say that it is the easiest thing you can do in this world. However, some continue to do so not only to the ordinary gentlemen on the ground but also to the great people of the world. Of course, Christopher Nolan is one of the great people in this world, and this time he has found himself yet again in a controversy that has refused to leave his shadows since the last decade.
Are Nolan’s films too loud?
Well, the volume is one of the complaints Nolan’s friends in Hollywood have brought up to him. According to the book “The Nolan’s Variations,” penned down by Tom Shone, Nolan’s peers have had many complaints about the sound mixing he uses for his films.
Shone has written a book in the company of Nolan himself, and at its core, it offers a deep dive into the director’s mind, his personal life, his childhood, and how he grew up. The book had also explored Nolan’s influences when he was starting out and how his filmmaking vision became what it is today. In simple terms, the book is a biographical account that explores Nolan’s life all the way up to “Tenet” (his most recent film).
In the book, you will find plenty of quotes of Nolan using which the author has tried to represent Nolan’s psychology in its most unhackneyed form. The author has presented Nolan’s views on a lot of topics, among which is the criticism that his film “Interstellar” had received at the time of its release. In the book, we can find Nolan’s anecdote in which he has told Shone how his peers used to come up to him and say that though they have watched his film “Interstellar,” but they have found its dialogues is inaudible. And to such people, Nolan would always say that the music was a part of the whole “enchilada” of how he and his team had created the sound mixing.
Nolan described in the book that people can be drawn back when it comes to sound mixing, which is not the case when we talk about actual film footage. He elaborated that the whole sound design of “Interstellar” was created with an ambitious outlook, especially in terms of sound engineering. He added that the idea was to create a medium that will transmit all the emotion of what it feels like to be in outer space. He reiterated that he had said plenty of times, the film was made for an IMAX experience, which means that both Nolan and Hans Zimmer’s brilliance can be appreciated once you see the film the way it was meant to be seen; i.e., in IMAX theaters.
Dunkirk is another example where Nolan and Zimmer used a similar technique to add dimension to their storytelling. It’s no wonder that Nolan’s voice is one of the loudest when it comes to people demanding the theaters to resume its functioning.
