I don't really care what the reason for using that particular organ was. 117db is loud enough to cause permanent ear damage with less than 30 seconds of exposure. Nolan seems to not care. That's...

I really hope you didn't take this film literally, it's not meant to be. Also, relatively speaking while there's a good bit of violence, the graphic nature of it is mostly alluded to. There are a few...
