To be honest, I still don’t really know what to make of Tom Tykwer and The Wachowski Bros.’ (slash sister) Cloud Atlas. It looks visually stunning but feels like one of those ideas every Tarantino-obsessed Freshman-year film student has his first day of classes. ‘It’s all connected, mannnnn.’ That being said, the more footage and trailers released for this movie, the more I seem to be getting kind of excited for it.
An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.
Also starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Susan Sarandon, Cloud Atlas opens October 26th.
