Take this as a confirmation that the destiny implied by Cloud Atlas is illusory. For the first time, I watched stories by the Wachowskis and Tykwer and felt free to enjoy them.

It's a rewarding film experience, if not an entirely satisfactory one.It's not for the faint of heart.

Balancing an emotional drama with an Avatar-meets-The Matrix glaze, Cloud Atlas is a film worth talking about and debating as much as it is one at which to smile.

And at its best, Cloud Atlas is sprawling, inventive, ambitious, na´ve, and thrilling. The momentum never lets up and sometimes that alone is all that keeps you moving through the weave of stories, but it can be enough.

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.

Personally, I felt ennobled by the inspiring ideas, and captivated by the impressive performances both in front of and behind the camera.

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.

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.
