Cloud Atlas

July 26, 2012

A new five minute trailer has just been released for the Wachowski‘s latest film, Cloud Atlas, based on David Mitchell’s novel of same name. Looks very imaginative, and maybe even a little profound.

I am surprised they waited until after Comic Con to release this.

YouTube video to be embedded at first availability.

      You may be able to see it here… dunno about worldwide, but possibly state-side. Can’t figure out how to embed here.

      Thanks, Ty. Looks like Warner Bros has a search and destroy algorithm rocking and have already blocked your copy. No problem, the Apple trailers are fine.

    Gotta be honest. Looks like a less philosophical, better financed version of The Fountain. Which I loved, but I’m jaded

    Yeah, that’s sad they blocked this.

    Downloaded the book. Assume that it will be better than the movie, Will let you all know how the book is when I get around to reading it.

    Reviews are starting to come in. Rotten Tomatoes and Aicn.

    CLOUD ATLAS crosses times from the colonial era to the recent past to the modern day, the near-future of 2144, and the far future that lacks a date stamp. Actors play varied types and races, sometimes linked to other characters in other story threads, whether directly or tangentially. It is about the biggest and smallest of ideas across romance, betrayal, suffering, fulfillment, and countless other microstories. Its six threads never feel like short subject features simply overelaid upon one another for fun. Instead, CLOUD ATLAS is like watching six features at the same time, with the interconnecting tissue feeding a productive progression in them all at once. As someone who studied Anthropology extensively in college, I can confidently assert that this “quantum narrative” delivers on the history and nature of humanity more profoundly than any film I’ve seen with so much as a similar aim. It’s like PLANET OF THE APES combined with 2001, swirled with CHINATOWN and so much of Wilder, plus six or seven other things. The craft of CLOUD ATLAS from all points reveals such immaculate precision and intention that to me, it truly defines a new conception of modern epic storytelling. Much of that is owed to the source material, but it is just as much on the shoulders of “Wachowskykwer”. CLOUD ATLAS defines “next level” filmmaking, and delivers ensemble cooperation and trust rarely seen outside the greatest stage acting and production in the world.

    There are so many more things I’m sure I could say. I could keep writing this review for days.

    Go in with an open mind or you’re doing yourself an incalculable disservice.
