The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”

Our 2011 retrospective is back with Stephen Daldry’s “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” starring Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Thomas Horn, Viola Davis, John Goodman, Jeffrey Wright & Max von Sydow. The surprise Best Picture nominee stunned everyone in 2011 when it overcame its poor reviews to make it into the final lineup, receiving two Oscar nominations overall. What do we think of it all these years later? Has it improved over the years, gotten worse, or remained the same? Tune in as Josh ParhamIsaiah Washington, Patreon supporter Connor Olen, and I discuss the performances, story, score, themes of this 9/11 drama, its awards season run, and more. Thank you for all your support, and enjoy! Also, be sure to check out our other 2011 retrospective reviews for “War Horse,” “The Help,” “The Iron Lady,” “Midnight In Paris,” & “The Tree Of Life.”
