Every once in a while there comes a movie that makes you think when you’re watching but leaves you with a sense of wonder once it’s done. Based on a popular book I am yet to read, Cloud Atlas uses the same idea of the reincarnated group of souls as one of my favourite novels: The Years of Rice and Salt.
Magical realism meets Italian Jews in the Second World War for one of the most beautiful movies you will ever see (if you haven’t seen it already).
I find it funny how the economic crisis of 1993 is but child’s play to what’s been going on since 2008, but the psychological environment is very, very similar.
Yes, it’s ugly, icky, and grandstanding, but it’s also a worthwhile addition to the “Alien” universe with strong references to panspermia and Von Daniken.
Don’t watch it if you don’t have a strong stomach, please.
Yes, it was not as perfect as The Dark Knight but 3rd acts aren’t always better than 2nd ones. Still a worthwile ending to a wonderful cinematic experience. I won’t spoil it for you, but if you haven’t seen it you should!
Caught the Danish 2012 Oscars submission on TV last night. As somebody living in that twilight zone between Nordic and Latin American culture I laughed out hard even at jokes the makers probably put there unintentionally. Hilarious movie with a big heart.
I hope I never have to argue in Danish, it sounds really funny. 😉
Go watch this now if you haven’t yet. I won’t spoil the movie (online reviews already do that) bu it’s the first time my wife has said she would like to see a superhero movie again.
No wonder it’s been such a blockbuster.
