Cloud Atlas 2012

Everything is Connected
A set of six nested stories spanning time between the 19th century and a distant post-apocalyptic future. Cloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. Action, mystery and romance weave through the story as 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. Based on the award winning novel by David Mitchell. Directed by Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis.

Most bullshit movie I have ever seen. This should go in "Don't ever see this movie" list. Highly overrated.

The book is incredibly clever, both in terms of the story and the structure. The film takes its own approach to the latter which works better for the cinema and allows the links between stories to be clearer. The film is not easy to follow and it probably helps if you are familiar with David MItchell's novel, but although it teeters on the brink of being overambitious it doesn't quite go over the edge and will thorough reward viewers who pay attention and give it repeat viewings.
