Boring. Oh yes, and depressing, but mainly boring. Incoherent too, but mainly boring.

Roger Ebert gave Cloud Atlas a glowing review and 4 stars which is especially poignant because the film got mixed reviews and the film has been dumped on critically. But I feel like he got it - the film is really ambitious, powerful, moving, and a rare paean to not only the indelible interconnectedness of humanity and human longing, but to freedom and self-determination that captures the eternally recurring moral struggle, at times violent and not for the weak-willed, necessary to secure one's own liberty and happiness and preserve it for generations to come. There is a lot take in, and may benefit from repeat viewings, but very, very worth it. Awesome.

This one has something for everyone. The several stories interweave nicely. I like how the actors played multiple parts. In some ways better than the book, it highlighted more of the parallels between stories and cut out some stuff that was not needed. The book was good, too, of course, just a bit different. Very rich visually, it even looks expensive to make. Nice job(s) on an ambitious project(s)!

This movie begs you to focus on the characters as they move through time, changing their Karma. Evil begets evil and good begets blessings. There aren't any predictable plot twists and letting your senses flow with the story reveals and unwraps the treasure within. The beginning and end meet and all points in between show the continuity of existence. Above all, it is escapism at it's finest.
