Why Dialogue Is The Most Important Part Of A Film.

Dialogue is the most important part of the film because it makes the film seem mature and solidly crafted. A movie with bland dialogue and cheesy lines comes off as immature and makes the screenwriter look like he didn’t try his hardest to create the best film he could. Quentin Tarantino is the perfect example of why dialogue is the most important part of a movie. This is because his viewers can watch two men sitting at a table for 15 minutes just taking, as in the beginning of Inglorious Basterds. The scene can seem boring at a glance but the dialogue makes it much more intense and grabbing for the viewer.
Dialogue is more than just another aspect of film. It can elivate a movie to a new level. Good dialogue creates better characters because it shows their depths. Bad dialogue can make characters seem bland and boring just like a regular person. As mentioned before, it can make a plain scene into a gripping and entertaining movie of its own.
Dialogue is the most important part of a film because it changes the way we watch and perceive the movie. Dialogue hints at underlying aspects of a character and mentions things that may be important later in the film. Dialogue is the meat between the bread of the movie.

I worked on a feature film that had no dialogue at all. Ironically, it was submitted to the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award nomination.

Dialogue is "the most important" only in the sense a layman is more likely to comment on bad dialogue than on bad camera work or editing simply because it is easier for a layman to articulate.

I don´t think dialogue is the most important part of a movie - if there is dialogue, then it certainly should be very good, otherwise better forget it. Film is at least in my thinking a medium telling stories through pictures, maybe aided by dialogue.

There are so many different stories to tell which can be told in so many different ways, so from my perspective it's unfair to apply your statement to every single movie.

It’s remarkably a befuddling and key piece of data.
I’m in staggering spirits that you in a general sense offered this astounding data to us
