We explore the use and abuse of sound and its relation to image in cinema. With emphasis on how sound influences our emotional reactions, we analyze dialogue, music and effects from the perspectives of the writer, the director, and the audience, looking at the factors that guide and constrain the creative process, as well as how changes in presentation have affected audience response. Examples are shown from foreign and domestic feature, documentary and animated films.
