>And in slightly less mainstream stuff, but not maybe experimental:


Attended an outdoor screening of "Microcosmos" one summer at an art museum
- I liked the movie, but they were selling cans of insecticide at the
concession stand. It just seemed so wrong.

Is anyone else especially bothered by "insect foley" in most films like
Microcosmos? Yes, we've got close-up lenses, but "close-up microphones"
don't really exist. Buzzing and flying sounds I can hear and understand,
so I'm not surprised when I hear them on a soundtrack. But I don't expect
insects walking on leaves (or whatever) to make much sound. When it gets
added on and ramped up it just seems stupid to me.
