Kieran's Review of Cloud Atlas
Another philosophical odyssey from the Wachowskis and Tykwer. The film successfully blends drama, mystery, and sci-fi genres in separate but plot-lines which are connected both thematically and by the characters with the same actors playing multiple roles. While it is long and requires commitment it is worth watching and then watching again. The performances are astounding, particularly those from Hugo Weaving, and Berry is stunning whether she be playing black, Indian or Jewish, or an old native woman.
