Film Review: Cloud Atlas
by Matthew Durham
I was ecstatic about this film when I first saw the six-minute trailer released. Normally a trailer doesn’t inject that much excitement into me, but I saw a ton of ambition. The storyline seemed complex and about issues and conflicts outside our natural understanding. Cloud Atlas looked amazing and it is amazing.
It wasn’t unexpected to see a good half of the critics didn’t take to Cloud Atlas, and those who did completely fell for it. Films like this bring to question the credibility of film critics. Websites like RottenTomatoes and MetaCritic help combine a critical outlook which helps consumers decide which ticket to buy. I don’t believe anyone in the right mind reads a single critics review and bases everything on that. At least people who know the internet well.
