extremely loud & incredibly close

Minimalist poster for the brilliant movie (haven’t read the book yet, but I’m sure it’ll be as brilliant – or even more brilliant) Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. For all the media backlash about using ‘cheap’ elements to bring out tears in viewers, I still think this is a pretty good tearjerker about loss, recovery and the things we gain after having lost something dear.

Have you watched the movie or read the book? Do you think it’s brilliant (like I do), or is it just another tearjerker?

  1. I loved this book, but I didn’t see the movie because all of my friends hated the movie, whether they had read the book or not. I didn’t want the movie to ruin my love of the book. I do think that poster is wonderful.

    • Thank you! I guess I understand what you mean when you didn’t want to see the movie; sometimes when the director’s interpretation differs too much from the author’s or reader’s, it can be very disappointing. I just wish sometimes that the author would direct the film adaptation of the novel! Haha.

      • Haha – that would be so awesome. I’ve loved all of Foer’s novels so if they all became movies (which two of them are) I would be fine with that. 🙂

        I will have to see it though because you thought so highly of it and in commercials it does look good.

      • There’s actually a movie adaptation of a novel that’s directed by the author himself! It’s a Taiwanese film though, and shot in Mandarin so I doubt you’ve ever heard of it – You Are the Apple of My Eye. Both the novel and the movie were brilliant!

I wanna hear your comments!
