Review in 100 Words – Cloud Atlas
Six stories run concurrently with a handful of actors playing several roles – it’s a lot to process unless you have read the book by David Mitchell. This Twyker and Wachowskis collaboration uniquely portrays the theme that people are bound throughout eternity by unseen forces (short of touching on “souls”). Great acting, visually well-executed and the makeup team should be highly commended for their work. Each story is fascinating, with the “Somni” segment the best. At worst it’s choppy storytelling. At best it’s a beautiful theme. I only want to know why at some point society is consisted of Asian-esque people.
