Movie Review: Cloud Atlas
Cloud Atlas is a masterpiece. This movie requires a lot of interaction on the watcher's part. By that, I mean you'll have to weave the plot threads together, be highly attentive, and think deeply. If you miss even one thread, you will become confused at best, or at worst, the entire tapestry will come completely unravelled, leaving you utterly lost.
The cinematography is stunning, the acting is fantastic, and the plot is brilliant. It is an adventure, a dystopian, a historical, a futuristic marvel dancing on the edge of sci-fi, a romance, and so much more. This could be part of why so many have trouble with it. But the main reason is the depth of thinking that it takes to puzzle this movie together. But when you do, it reveals a tale that will leave you breathless.
All that considered, I wouldn't recommend this movie for everyone, but for those who like movies that make them sit up and take part, you're in for a treat.
