Cloud Atlas

The film explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave dramatically through the story as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future. Each member of the ensemble appears in multiple roles as the stories move through time.

October 25, 2012 - Boston.com - By Ty Burr, Globe Staff

The dazzling cinematic folly that is “Cloud Atlas” springs from the same idealistic impulse that has driven movies like “The Tree of Life,” “2001: A Space Odyssey,” even D.W. Griffith’s 1916 “Intolerance” — the urge to explain the mystery of existence, the whole ontological ball of wax, in one sitting with popcorn. At the risk of sounding cynical, it’s best to approach such projects with caution and, in this case, a sturdy pair of asbestos gloves. Unlike “Tree” or “2001,” “Cloud Atlas” offers more answers than it does questions, and by the end of its nearly three-hour running time — which flies by surprisingly fast, all things considered — it feels like the most feverishly expensive late-night college bull session ever. There are glories here, but they fade in the light of day.
