Have you seen Cloud Atlas?
I just got home from seeing Cloud Atlas for the second time. If you haven't seen this movie, go see it immediately before it's out of the theaters.
The first time I saw it, as the final credits started to roll, I was thinking to myself "Wow, I think I need to see that about a dozen times before I'll fully appreciate it." Just then, as that thought crossed my mind, a guy sitting behind me said, "Wow. I think I have to see that a few more times."
I can't wait for the DVD because then I'll be able to study it in minute detail. It's a movie that demands that kind of attention. But for full effect it begs to be seen on the big screen first, so don't deprive yourself!
It will take some brain power. Tonight a group of four bubbleheads sitting ahead of us actually walked out on it commenting loudly that it was too confusing. So don't go in looking for a fluff movie. Go in expecting to be challenged.
Genre? It's a dramatic comedy fantasy romance noir historical scifi flick. Yeah. Really.
