Cloud Atlas: other voices

  • Print

Excerpts from select reviews of Cloud Atlas:

 

"For all its ambition and accomplishment, and for the ostensibly subversive philosophy it pushes, Cloud Atlas ends up being just another platitudinous, overblown pummel-you-into-submission, movie-machine."

-- Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies

 

"I was never, ever bored by Cloud Atlas. On my second viewing, I gave up any attempt to work out the logical connections between the segments, stories and characters. What was important was that I set my mind free to play."

-- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

 

"The movie doesn't really work, but it's fascinating in the ways it doesn't."

--Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

 

"This is by no means the best movie of the year, but it may be the most movie you can get for the price of a single ticket."

-- A. O. Scott, New York Times

 

SDLqCloud Atlas is a cornily enthralling sci-fi kaleidoscope."

-- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

 

"A trash heap of rubber noses and implausible high school accents that give new meaning to the word 'pretentious.'"

-- Rex Reed, New York Observer

 

"Cloud Atlas is consistently entertaining and surprisingly effective, as well as the shortest three hours most moviegoers will ever spend in a theatre... and that's no small recommendation."

-- Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
