justAtadcast: Episode 7 – Cloud Atlas

November 1, 2012 — 6 Comments

Sometimes a film just begs to be discussed. It’s not always a great film, or a film that everyone loves, but it’s always a film with a lot of interesting parts. Trying to add all those parts together is too much fun to resist. Such is the case with Cloud Atlas, the new film adaptation of the David Mitchell novel, co-directed by Tom Tywer and the Wachowski’s.

For this week’s episode, I was joined for the second time by Kristen Sales (@salesonfilm and writer at Who Got The Role) as well as Christopher Runyon (@CGRunyon and Cineffect). The discussion was long and wide-ranging. And when I say long, I mean it. Two whole hours of Cloud Atlas talk covering just about everything we could think of, from the qualities of the adaptation to the music to the acting to the thematic resonance or lack thereof. So settle in and enjoy the show.

If you have any feedback on Cloud Atlas, this episode, or the show in general, don’t hesitate to email me at coreyatad@gmail.com.

    This makes me happy. You guys really did cover pretty much every possible thing, and I was dying to hear some intelligent conversation about the movie and the book, and you certainly delivered. I agree with the general opinion that the book is more enjoyable and life-enriching, but the movie is by no means bad, and worth a look. I was really hoping that the movie would help sort out the characters and the theme of recurring souls with the help of the visuals but I almost left more confused than I went into it in that respect. But you can’t have everything, not even in three hours. Thanks so much for taking the time to put this together! I really did enjoy it. 🙂 Cheers!
