Director Paul Greengrass and cinematographer Barry Ackroyd create a vivid, insider’s look at life at sea and how a crew of twenty did their best to elude their would-be captors.

Enthralling and frustrating…far-reaching and obtuse…grandiose and gimmicky. 'Cloud Atlas' is all of these and more, and while I was less taken with the film at its conclusion than I was midway through, it offered me a unique moviegoing experience for which I am grateful.

I doubt that anyone who lived through the events of September 11, 2001 could remain completely unmoved by the story of how one boy deals with the death of his father, who was trapped in one of the World Trade Center towers that morning. There are many painful, poignant, and highly-fraught moments in 'Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close', simply because they remind us of what so many of us experienced that day, even from afar. But this drama, under the skillful direction of Stephen Daldry, aims to do more than merely arouse our latent emotions.
