I had no idea what I was walking into the first time I went to see Cloud Atlas in theaters. I became aware of the movie one day when I went to check what the Wachowski brothers were up to, and I saw this project, 'Cloud Atlas'.
Like I said before, I had no idea what I was getting myself into the first time I saw it. I am writing this review the day after my second viewing.
What is there to say? The scope of the film spans centuries, focusing on the lives of individuals in certain time periods that are some how connected without their knowing, where their actions effects the lives of those in the future without them even trying or knowing.
You can say that it is a story of soul mates finding each other again and again throughout time, either glimpsing each other for moments, or spending their lives together. It's an amazing, gripping film of hope, sadness, and above all, humanity. I truly love this film, and plan on purchasing it when it is released.
