Just exactly what Cloud Atlas is really about is anyone’s guess at this point. The trailers have all been both intriguing, and confusing as to the actual plot. It appears to have six different threads running through the film that will be in some manner weaved together. I’m picking up a strong Hindu vibe, but this isn’t really surprising since the previous well known film trilogy by the Wachowskis started heading majorly in this direction in the second installment. I have a feeling this is really going to annoy me, but perhaps, if done right, a fanciful world can be created that won’t annoy me too much. We will see.
In any event, here’s a clip for you, but beware of SPOILERS! You have been warned.
