The Film Fatale

About Cloud Atlas, I think it's really a love it or hate it kind if movie. Like you disliked it but I went nuts for it, so I think it's worth checking out but I also think you should keep in mind that you could strongly dislike it or absolutely love it.

Not sure what you mean by this. If you mean that people will disagree about it and that there are some who will like it and some who won’t, that’s already a given. I liked the story and thought the premise was clever. I just don’t agree with and ultimately didn’t care for the way it was executed. It also did not make the best use of film as a medium for telling David Mitchell’s elaborate story. And honestly, I don’t think it’s a love it or hate it kind of movie because to me things are very seldom black and white. I would be shocked to find people who were 100% in love with everything in the movie (or to the other extreme, hated it 100%), because to me there were a lot of glaring, problematic things in it. As I’ve said previously, I’m not trying to convince anyone to avoid the film. By all means, see it. In fact, I’d encourage it so that we can get a lively dialogue going about it.
