Cloud Atlas: great movie or great confusion?
I sometimes see a film for the plot, the actors, the cinematography, the directing or just for pure entertainment. It's hard to find a niche for this one. It's a huge film, so many stories, plots, subplots, actors in multiple roles (was that really Halle Berry? No, it couldn't be...wait, maybe it was?) This is a real "suspend your disbelief" film, don't even think about leaving the theater for popcorn, just go with the flow...it's too long, probably too daring and too complicated but somehow it works. I found myself thinking about the ideas, broad as they are this morning..are we all connected? does one door open into another? All in all well worth the time...although I did turn on my phone to check the time...more than once.
