Cloud Atlas

About halfway through this movie, all I knew for certain was that Denzel Washington wasn't in it. And I wasn't terribly sure about that.

But eventually the a theme was knitted from all the apparently disparate parts. And by the end I was cheering like a genetically-engineered fabricant on "soap".  Well, internally I was cheering. Our living room has a rule against audience participation.

Critical reactions were polarized, which is good, because it means the film critics get a shock every time they touch a door knob. So we got that going for us. My advice: rent it.
