Cloud Atlas

“Hold on tight cause this is going to be a long one... You've been warned.

There are movies with large ambitions that dare to think big and go outside the box, and then there is Cloud Atlas. This is a movie so sprawling, drunk on ides and visuals that the three hours it takes to tell its various stories, which don’t always connect neatly or even at all, feels like only the beginning. It may not be a perfect film, but in terms of sheer scope, ambition, passion and craft on display – it’s a glorious, once in a lifetime kind of achievement.

There are six stories which overlap in actors and themes, detailing the interconnectedness of the human race, its penchant for violence within itself and to those it deems “Others” and, of course, in reincarnation, predestinate” read more

A beautifully crafted but poorly structured film.

“With Cloud Atlas featuring some kind of philosophical purpose within its six different stories along with an impressive ensemble cast, the direction from Andy and Lana Wachowski and clocking at almost 3 hours, it seemed to have ‘epic’ all over it. However, in the end to call Cloud Atlas an ‘epic’ film is perhaps an overstatement as it does not quite achieve the potential that it has made out to appear. Of course, the film succeeds on the technical side of things and is a visual delight, but that was already to be expected of it. On the other hand, when it comes to the writing, direction and acting, Cloud Atlas is a disappointment.

Based on the 2004 novel by David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas is the latest feature from the Wachowski siblings (The Matrix trilogy) who have another ” read more

"For those who don't know, in a festival, the Grand Jury prize honors a great movie which just missed the biggest prize. Notes: Wow! This movie came out from nowhere but really smashed me. I mean, I kept hearing interesting things about it but I wasn't sure since I have never been a fan of the Wachowski siblings (in my opinion, 'The Matrix' is the most overrated movies ever made) but they and Tom Tykwer managed to make the most ambitious movie released this year, possibly one of the most ambit"

"It's hard to say in which department - visuals or narrative - Cloud Atlas is the most ambitious. Somehow, it manages to effectively balance the weight of each storyline, making them all just as important to the overall picture (although I personally loved the Neo-Seoul sequences the most). The settings and atmospheres are magnificent, though never overbearing. There are some traits regarding its storytelling that I don't quite agree with; moreover, it chooses to simply tell its philosophy throug"

A very good movie

“Wow! I really didn't expect to be blown away like this... I mean, I have to admit I was intrigued. Come on! It is not everyday that you get the opportunity to watch a movie written and directed by Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski's siblings. Eventually, it is one of those movies which absolutely needs to take 3 hours, I couldn't imagine a shorter version. Basically, during the first hour, I thought I was watching something inspired by David Lynch's work, because of the randomness produced by the whole thing. But then, at some point, I started to see the connections between the characters and the different storylines and, at the end, I was just really overwhelmed. Basically, you have 6 stories more or less intertwined together, a couple of costum dramas, a couple of science-fiction tales, a 70'” read more

" Nothing less than a purely joyous celebration of movie-making. It's big, ambitious, and nearly 3 hours long. But this is one of those few movies that's justified in its unwieldy length. Cloud Atlas won't be to everyone's taste, but if you don't try to over-think it and just go along for the ride as the film progresses and connects to itself in terms of theme rather than narrative there is a lot to marvel at. I don't think I'd revisit it any time soon, but nonetheless, Cloud Atlas is a notewort"

2012 Academy Awards Predictions (20 movies items)

"**John Williams- Lincoln *Mychael Danna- Life of Pi *Alexandre Desplat - Argo *Reinhold Hell, Johnny Kilmek & Tom Tyker- Cloud Atlas *Dario Marianelli- Anna Karenina This categoy has no real frontrunner at the moment, but several leading candidates, and even more potential spoilers. Currently, I'm giving John Williams the edge because, well he's John Williams. His biggest competition at the moment appears to be Dario Marianelli's score for Anna Karenina, both of which are the only two "

"Have I ever once truly enjoyed a Tom Hanks movie as much as I'm supposed to? Will that happen with this one?"


BradWesley123 posted a review 2 years, 10 months ago

“Every year, a movie comes along the is guaranteed cult status. Last year, "Drive" took the crown, and while this year has a few contenders already; Looper, The Cabin in the Woods, etc., Cloud Atlas stakes its claim, resulting in one of the single most ambitious films ever made. All six stories in this film would each make great films in their own right, with great characters and wonderful performances, but together they form an idea, an idea that makes this movie truly special.

The acting is great, the direction is wonderful, the editing is some of the finest in a very long time, visually it's quite stunning, and the score is oscar worthy. One of the best movies of the year for sure, and it may one day be viewed as one of the all-time greats.” read more

"An audacious, completely immersive, complexly crafted, well-acted and admirably ambitious piece of cinematic art and a truly unique and entertaining experience that leaves you wanting more. I felt like I could watch this movie for another two or three hours on top of the already nearly 3 hour runtime that to me just zips by and when a director (or rather directors) can do that then you know that you've made something outstanding.
