As is typical for hollywood, there is another anti-business message in this one. Another assumption that business people are unethical and will kill in order to get their way. Absolutely a stupid message.

Cloud Atlas took me way out beyond the box, the building and the world. It's a movie that you want to see again after a week or so of processing. It's not for those who need to be spoon fed ideas, as it challenges one to be open to possibilities to follow the quantum jumps. I hope this movie is the start of a trend, loved it.

It was about half-way through that I thought to myself, "I love this movie." Each story covered its own genre well and they were all cut together beautifully. Actors in multiple roles could be jarring at times (Tom Hanks with a Cockney accent?) but it mostly worked. It does require the viewer to pay attention and think about what they're experiencing which isn't for everyone. It was definitely for me, though.

I was so excited to see this movie, because the maker of the matrix and the terrific cast.The movie was very confusing, the spend too much time in the simple things and none time to explain the real deal. The idea is carry on with the emotion with the special effects and back in forth with the past and the future. Entertainment not recommended .

I went in expecting a sumptuous sight for the eyes and something thought provoking and was not disappointed. Great performances all around by a great cast each doing multiple roles. Some (SPOILER ALERT) like Hugo Weaving were precious. I have not read the book on which the movie was based, but I have already decided to look into it as well as the music score. The multiplex cinema we went to had the film in a small theatre and it was packed. I'm glad I used Fandango to purchase tickets in advance.
