An epic tale of good vs. evil
I am a total fan of pictures that deal with time and eternity and major life issues. Cloud Atlas is not for people offended by lanquage and graphic content, it is a long, complicated, morality tale about mankinds ability to trample on the downtrodden or to use greed, power, and violence to rule the world. I was impressed by the effort, and I think the movie will be panned by many but I saw the heart of the message that ties together six different times and stories in a clever way, one with a blockbuster revelation. We must fight evil wherever it manifests in our lives and we must practice kindness and caring for we are all related, we make a better life or a nightmare existence. All this movie going represents an entrance back into life after a week of feeling real low, my lung are still way to congested to try breathing the are of a golf course, but just getting with friends for a meal and conversation on my day off was good.
