FMP Ep. 039 – ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’ / ‘The Woman in Black’

Alex was joined by Film Misery contributor and podcast master in his own right, Justin Jagoe. Together they discuss the movies Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and The Woman in Black. The conversation expands to why each film employs manipulation and whether or not it was effective. They also speculate as to why Max Von Sydow received an Oscar nomination and which race will be the hardest to predict.

  • I finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close the novel a week ago for may Language Arts class and I can tell you that the story was never good in the first place. Probably one of the worst books I’ve ever read and of course the most manipulative.
