"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, 6 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

2012 Movies I've Seen (97 movies items)

"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.

Film Ninja posted a review 2 years, 8 months ago

“The Wachowskis join forces with Tom Tykwer and overhaul the meaning of the word Epic! Kudos to all the filmmakers for adapting this famously "unfilmable" novel in such an inventive way. There are SIX separate timelines that switch after every scene, but instead of the plot, the narrative continuity follows the theme of the film. Once you clue in to that overall theme, it is no longer confusing when the story jumps from a runaway slave in the 1800s to a post apocalyptic future battle between some of the last humans remaining on earth.

All this audacious style and structure makes Cloud Atlas a curiosity to say the least, but the film is lifted to the realm of "Masterpiece" by the all-star ensemble cast. This impressive collection of actors fires off amazing performances like th” read more
