Apart from the classical HLW story of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, it also features the classical narration.The boy has a desire to maintain the feelings(the goal),and the key give him a way to achieve it.With the numerous Blacks and his character flaws serving as the indispensable counter force, the basic elements are in line and Oscar starts off all alone.However, the expedition of a powerless lonely boy is both unreal and dull,so the director put in an assistant ——grandfather ,another injured man,and meanwhile put in the beloved cue——the recovery of a family.Subjective narration, unusually running through the film, restricts what we see and finally repays the surprises of mother and the return of the grandfather.
There are still several innovations.The ubiquitous flashbacks not only make up “father”who serves as an invisible promotion of the development of the story, but also bring the whole constructure alive.Considering the contents,flashbacks convey more detai...

Apart from the classical HLW story of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, it also features the classical narration.The boy has a desire to maintain the feelings(the goal),and the key give him a way to achieve it.With the numerous Blacks and his character flaws serving as the indispensable counter force, the basic elements are in line and Oscar starts off all alone.However, the expedition of a powerless lonely boy is both unreal and dull,so the director put in an assistant ——grandfather ,another injured man,and meanwhile put in the beloved cue——the recovery of a family.Subjective narration, unusually running through the film, restricts what we see and finally repays the surprises of mother and the return of the grandfather.
There are still several innovations.The ubiquitous flashbacks not only make up “father”who serves as an invisible promotion of the development of the story, but also bring the whole constructure alive.Considering the contents,flashbacks convey more details that cannot show by pure subjective narration. It is the division of details that impresses me because it requires we audiences to restore what happened that day and grasp the inner relation.
The second lies in the parallelism between two father and son and Oscar’s contrast attitude to father and mother.The two together effectively enrich the story layers and promote more about American ideology.
 The great new wonderful is more complex.It overall breaks the convention owing to the parallel montage of 5different stories and comparisons just stand to reason.Montage editing takes us across various group of characters,various life styles and various hidden troubles .And our range of knowledge is significantly broadened due to a more unrestricted narration,which though decreases some curiosity or surprise,displays a more credible life with little drama and describe both people and society in a calmer and more serious way.The objective narration meanwhile deepens the story information via dialogues,action and mise en scene but inevitably decreases the direct details to show character’s psychological states.
Innovation ,especially in commercial films ,will be useless if it ignores basic expectations of audiences.The chief challenge is the continuity rule.That is,how to make it novel and more importantly avoid being scattered.And then we are displayed the endeavor of director in the design of each story’s constructure and the utilization of technics to bond them organically.
What worthy of attention is that when we make up the pieces of each story,we can find the classical convention inside them——the worse situation stimulates the desire to change,and after a fierce inner struggle,characters wake up from self-deception, face the music and try hard to conquer obstacles ,then the film achieve the climax ,finally without exception ,end up with a happy closure.This constructure,as mentioned before ,is beneficial to enhance the continuity.
And when we think about the constructures of each story ,we do more than purely watching. With its unusual form ,the film invites us to analyze the parallelism across the entire film,which is strongly required than the former film.We are expected to search the inner relations the plots hint.On one hand,we audiences are expecting the meeting point. On the other hand ,we compare them to look for something universal.The innovation is that what 5 stories share is not something concrete (there are few meeting points among the 5 stories )but the similar abstract frustration.
Frustration is perfect along with another helpers——sound bridge and music. While song bridge help smooth over the edit point between two shots, music works in unifying the whole. But the music is less efficient in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, strictly can be described as disappointing which is always discordant with the plots.

     Unlikely films about World War Two or Vietnam War, those about 911 seem to be more cautious and soft, lacking necessary introspection in either race conflict or society improvement. Both of them are short of the patience to explore and display the deep frustration, insecurity or disappointment featuring 911 but tedious lack of interaction and character flaws(Though they are still indispensable).And the recovery comes so quickly that it is somehow fake and over-optimistic. The absence of specific analysis or opinion weaken them when compared to super hero films equipped with specific effects and those focusing on race(My Name Is Khan).
