The movie is otherwise so carefully rendered that I am almost inclined to believe Nolan deliberately obscured the sound to get fanboys and other obsessives to see it over and over again just so they can make sense out of the action. But that would be a lunatic corporate profit-seeking conspiracy theory of exactly the sort we see at work in Inception, now, wouldn’t it?
