  • For all the spectacular settings and visionary designs, Cloud Atlas left me feeling disconnected. Sad. But that's the true true. show more

  • This would-be epic is beautifully photographed, elegantly crafted and adventurously cast. Unfortunately, though, it plays like a gargantuan trailer for a movie still to be made. show more

  • Cloud Atlas is pop spiritualism, comic-book grandiosity, Zen for dummies. I can't say I didn't enjoy it on some level, but it's not the level of universal wisdom the Wachowskis and Tykwer would have us be on. show more
