I almost wish we were butterflies and liv’d but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.”
I've been wanting to see Cloud Atlas. How is it?
first, i have to shamefully say i still have not read the book.
now the movie… i actually loved it! i’ve no fear of long movies and i enjoyed every minute of it. the interweaving of stories and connections between each story.. i was a bit overwhelmed - in the best sense - during the movie, but upon reflecting on it afterwards and thinking about the monologues the characters deliver about life, how there is a natural order, from womb to tomb, our lives are not our own…it’s deep stuff and it hit me in the most profound way. it’s a remarkable film. you definitely need to see it. you might love it, you might hate it, but no matter how confused you may get, just let the movie wash over you and absorb its beauty - it’s visually stunning - and the poetry of the monologues.
