Cloud Atlas- A glance at the Past, Present, and Future

Yesterday , I took the time to see Cloud Atlas . A new scifi/fantasy movie starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and a handful of award winning actors. Based off a 2004 book, it is “An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.”(IMDB) The description is definitely a good signal for how complex the movie really is. It cuts across 4 different time periods, with 4 different subplots, but all are interconnected to each other by the characters souls in different bodies. I have to admit it is difficult to keep track of how each plot builds from each other but in the end it makes it pretty clear. I enjoyed the way they played on the idea of cause and effect, and how every decision effects yourself and everything else around you; whether you are aware of it or not.  I would suggest you to see it if you like to think during the movies. It will definitely captivate you.  See trailer below ↓
