Cloud Atlas (8-Sep-2012)
Directors: Tom Tykwer; Andy Wachowski; Lana Wachowski
Writers: Tom Tykwer; Andy Wachowski; Lana Wachowski
From novel: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
Film adaptation of the 2004 novel of the same name embarks on a sci-fi odyssey encompassing multiple plotlines set across six separate eras.
The creative minds that once brought viewers The Matrix return with Cloud Atlas, a sordid and oft-confounding epic spanning multiple timelines that seeks to, in the words of the film's very own synopsis, tell the story of "how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present, and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution." Cloud Atlas went on to become one of the most polarizing major films of all time, with about as many critics declaring it to be one of the greatest films ever made as there were labeling it one of the worst.
