Of course, but I'm looking for scenes where everyday perception is
'stretched', as in so many other cases in film. Little dialogue is
recorded 'naturalistically' (cf. Altman 1992, for instance); even the
'hushed' dialogue in loads of 'typical' Hollywood films, would be
incomprehensible if experienced from the distance that the image
'suggests', in everyday life, that is (which I find interesting, as
it creates a very intimate/personal listening experience).

Thanks, anyway, for good suggestions.
