I can hear every word in this Sicario trailer, no sweat. But when I saw Denis Villeneuve‘s drug-trade melodrama last May at the Cannes Film Festival, I could understand maybe 10% of the dialogue. The sound in the Grand Theatre Lumiere is too bassy and echo-y. I managed to pick up a stray word or phrase here and there, and when all else failed I relied on nouns and verbs contained in the French subtitles. Listen and read and combine, listen and read and combine…keep trying. The only way I understood complete sentences was from reading the English subtitles when Benicio del Toro spoke Spanish.” I would seriously love to catch Sicario again under better circumstances.
