Can anyone help me in thinking of movies in which a conversation or a human
voice is deliberately obstructed or drowned out by another sound, thus
frustrating the spectator's access to the voice or voices in question?
Godard does this in certain of his films, and I'm thinking that Hitchcock
has too (in that this is a clever way to build suspense).  Thanks in
advance!
