Stick with this one….it does improve as you watch.
I was not especially impressed with “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” 15-20 minutes into the film. The film seemed rather uninteresting and the story didn’t grab me. However, because it was Oscar-nominated, I thought I’d stick with it and I’m glad I did.
The film is about a VERY strange 11 year-old boy–so strange that he was really hard to believe. His father was killed in the Twin Towers during 9/11 and he’s not coping well with it. In fact, the boy is seriously emotionally disturbed. Now you’d expect him to be depressed, but his problems go FAR beyond that. He’s dealing with some serious symptoms of an Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder–such that he appears close to losing his mind. The boy develops a strange compulsion that his father is trying to communicate with him from beyond–and he needs to figure out the clues his father left to make sense of EVERYTHING. However, as we all know, 9/11 does NOT make sense nor do other senseless tragedies–and the film is about his obsessive quest for for answers and some sense of control.
Aside from not believing the kid’s story, I also got caught up thinking that his quest seemed impossible. After all, his mother wouldn’t just let him roam about Manhattan like he did. And who was that strange mute man (played by Max Von Sydow) and why did he receive an Oscar nomination for this role? Well there is clearly a good answer for the former–and it all makes sense as the film progresses. As for the latter, I still wonder why he received this nomination. Now Von Sydow is a fine actor–but he said not a single word in this film and he also wasn’t in the film all that long–yet he was nominated and was considered a likely winner (though he did not win). Regardless, this film will sneak up on you–it is a fine story and was very well made. Stick with it….
