Film review: Cloud Atlas

Written by on November 30, 2012 in Leisure - No comments

A hundred million dollars down the drain.

Cloud Atlas sets forth with epic ambition, and the result is proportionally beyond epically worse. With outlines that resemble Darren Aronofsky’s either-love-it-or-hate-it 2006 film The Fountain, which saw Hugh Jackman in love in three different stories that span the entire history of Planet Earth, this latest generation-jumping tapestry of tales that feed off each other is actually just a rug masquerading as a red carpet.

Running some 160 minutes, there ought to be ample time to establish a narrative, but, in the end, as is so often the case with multilayered narratives, we get glimpses into many (in this case, six) different storylines without ultimately getting a grip on any of them.
