I saw Cloud Atlas last night, and don't know exactly what I think of it. I agree with Leonard Maltin, who said it was enthralling and frustrating at the same time.

Maybe my best example of my thoughts is to compare it to something else. In this case, it's when a band performs a medley of many of their songs. If you don't like the song their doing at the time, at least another one will becoming soon, but the songs you like never last as long as you'd like. It can be kind of neat, but overall not entirely satisfying. I thought the story about Jim Broadbent in the retirement community was painful.

It does get my pick as "Most Likely for Me to Come Around On", or as I call it, the Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Award.
