With Wit, Reviewed By Kimmo Mustonenen
There are times when the sweet, sweet smoke must be smoked before the mind can accept strange.
You think “I understand anything and have the munchies.”
Other times Kossu is demanded for drink – sense must be made but you are more “I pretend to get it” and then “more Kossu, please” until the drunkening is achieved.
Now there is the “Cloud Atlas.”
I must be for the admitting that my brain was blown.
Not by gunshot (not yet, thank Odin).
Not by crack whore (thanks again).
But by cinema.
Not since “Zardoz” has there been so much “huh?” in my thinking parts.
Tom Hanks plays many character people, some with latex (on his face, perverts!).
Halle Barry has also the many latex people to be – but not like Tom, she has bigger boobs.
Tom IS getting moobs, however, because he is getting the olds.
It is all of mankind’s future. Moobs. For men.
That is not discussed in the film.
Plot? You let me in the know – I was idea-less. I’ll try.
There are many stories, in many orders, none for the explaining (my mind is whacked).
First, the way back in the South Pacific and Hanks is a sailor man.
Then the really near past in San Francisco with Berry and her love puppies bouncing and in the investigation mode.
Then today with an old drooler stuck in the pre-morgue unhappily (stay off his lawn!).
Then the way future where ‘droids are less cool than “Star Wars” and are Korean-ese but played by white people (I think – CGI would make it possible).
Then, the way way future, where Hanks and Berry are post-apocalyptic – yet her headlamps still are ample.
Which is good.
This is directed by Tom Tykwer (“You Better Run, Lola”) and the Brothers Wachowski (“Matrix” cool – other stuff is the suck) and one brother is a girl.
No wonder my thoughts cannot hug what my eyeballs tell them is real. For it is unreal.
So, plot? So you tell me.
But great? Pretty damn so.
My mind flies like a 9 year old boy seeing his first of the female nakedness – I am not understanding yet am standing in awe (but without the pants bone).
Both are terrific and at the time of seeing not understandable.
Two thumbs are in the air! What the hell did they see? A “wow, cool, what?” movie that is cool.
Hells yeah. I will see this many times, with the Cheetos and weed to make the understanding believable. It is the only way.
Go to your dispensary. Grab your pipe. Go see “Cloud Atlas.”

P.S. “American Horror Story – Asylum” is coooool. Adam Levine gets what he (for his Marooning 5 crimes) deserves. I smiled big!
