Cloud Atlas

The Wachowskis (the Matrix trilogy) join forces with director Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) for a genre and century-spanning epic, showing how the actions of a distant generation can influence another. Adapted from David Mitchell’s best-selling novel. Stars Tom Hanks and Halle Berry.

One soul is shaped from a killer into a hero and a single act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution in the distant future. Each member of the ensemble appears in multiple roles as the stories move through time.

An intense three-hour mental workout rewarded with a big emotional payoff.

A grand folly that makes the Wachowskis' The Matrix trilogy look prosaic, Cloud Atlas is a fascinating if flawed work that will leave you gasping one minute and gagging the next.

This is by no means the best movie of the year, but it may be the most movie you can get for the price of a single ticket.

Unfortunately, these bold ambitions come to naught. They confuse the cosmos with the costume department and wind up lost in a world of wigs and bonnets.

What sinks "Cloud Atlas" is not the largeness of its ambitions but the lack of skill it displays in terms of writing, directing and acting.

Everything gets homogenized into a blandish whole, the impact of each story softened by the constant need to connect the dots.

It's an adventure into the very concept of storytelling: magical, enthralling and thrilling as much as bewildering, pompous and potty. In other words, up in the clouds.

It's an imperfect film of great daring and tremendous humanity, a work of many stories, but a singular achievement.
