REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

“..the sky's not the limit in this well made but dramatically diffuse art house blockbuster..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 4

“..it isn't as complicated as it thinks..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2 of 4

“..is pop spiritualism, comic-book grandiosity, Zen for dummies. I can't say I didn't enjoy it on some level, but it's not the level of universal wisdom the Wachowskis and Tykwer would have us be on..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 4

“..is consistently challenging, frequently entertaining and occasionally maddening..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..is a movie about everything, but that's the same as a movie about nothing..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

“..Cloud Atlas left me feeling disconnected..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..Cloud Atlas is going to be far and away the most divisive film of 2012, but I don't think it's possible to fault it for shortage of chutzpah..”
by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph]
2 of 5

“..at 163 minutes Cloud Atlas carries all the marks of a giant folly, and those unfamiliar with the book will be baffled. Yet it's hard to wholly condemn the directors' ambition - this is fast-paced and cleverly assembled, with the best of the performances..”
by Henry Barnes [The Guardian]
2.5 of 4

“..a consistently tangled experience - captivating and frustrating, occasionally enjoyable to piece together, and sometimes a slog..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

WAR ROOM :

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
