We normally can't see dead people, but that doesn't mean they're not like threads disappearing below a tapestry's surface and resurfacing elsewhere. A clarification of sorts.

Despite its shortcomings, it's worth seeing and worth trying to get your head around days after you have. Revolutionary or gimmicky? Good news: Not quite either.

This is the Bermuda Triangle of sci-fi - where logic and clarity vanish without a trace.

Even at its most risible, this oddball picture has a groovy, inclusive spirit that feels downright revolutionary in our sterile, blockbuster age.

When the narratives are formally compared as an expression of karma and reincarnation, the juxtaposition is vacuous.

A movie that transcends all structure for a meaning much deeper than can ever be written in clarity.

July 3, 2013
A scattershot film that courageously tries to incorporate as much of the novel as possible, only to find it doesn't translate well from the page.

Like a fitted coat worn by someone it wasn't tailored for, parts of Cloud Atlas bulge out, overstretched, begging for more material, while other sections hang laughably loose.

It would be an excellent advertisement for you to read the book, if you hadn't just ruined it by watching the movie.

Whatever your age, even if life is an ocean made up of many drops, you may resolve that life is too short for this errant nonsense.

With Hollywood in its current conservative mode, recycling tired franchises left and right, it's tempting to applaud the sheer out-there-ness of Cloud Atlas.

It's kind of fascinating to watch a vaunted Oscar quartet embarrass itself under the delusion that it's communicating something IMPORTANT!

Despite the fact that ot sometimes looks like $102 million celebrity dress up party where Tom Hanks got a really good bulk deal on latex noses Cloud Atlas sometimes strikes moments of sheer beauty.

A little too unfocused at times, there's something deeply involving about this time-spanning romantic thesis.

An epic, genre-hopping, unique adventure that effectively shoe-horns six films into one...Cloud Atlas achieves that rarest of all things for a film this big: it is engaging and consistently entertaining as well as providing brain food.
