Abstract
Expanding on ideas presented by Danijela Kulezic-Wilson in a chapter of her 2020 book Sound Design Is the New Score, this article explores the nature of “reticent” films both old and new, and it suggests that often it is because their soundtracks have so little to “say” that these films communicate so very, very much.
