The Cloud Atlas.
(see attachment in previous post)
A not bad at all adaptation of the David Mitchell novel by the same name. A quantum metaphysical romp through several centuries of linked souls and events. Some remarkably good performances by Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, and especially Korean actress Doona Bae for her portrayal of a clone by the name of Sonmi-451.

One fun thing about this movie is that almost every actor plays several (as in three to seven) different roles - so it's a fun game to try to identify who is playing whom in the various storylines. Some of them will surprise you when the credits roll.
@40hz... that was a horrible intro to that film... Some good description, but you left me entirely unprepared for it. Perhaps that was a good thing...
I just finished watching it...
You've massively understated what this film is.
This is a brilliant film, but not one that you can casually just "absorb".
If you're going to watch this, plan it. Make some popcorn. Have ice & drinks ready. This film is an event. Pay attention, and enjoy it.
This is more than just a film. This is an adventure.
I think that I need to watch this again.
Don't get into this film with any expectations. Just let it unfold and take you where it goes. You'll enjoy the ride. It's spectacular.
40hz has given a bit of description there, but it's completely inadequate to describe what this is. Pure brilliance.
But pay attention. This isn't a film that you can drift in and out of as easily as so many others.
This film is full of love, hate, beauty, violence, hope, dreams, evil, redemption, vengeance, and so much more.
THIS is a work of art.
I won't pretend to have any interpretation of this. But I will attest to its wonder and beauty. tl;dr - WOW!
