movie: cloud atlas

6

Finished in a frenzy that reminded me of our last night in Cambridge. Watched my final sunrise. Enjoyed a last cigarette. Didn’t think the view could be any more perfect until I saw that beat-up trilby. Honestly, Sixsmith, as ridiculous as that thing makes you look, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anything more beautiful. Watched you for as long as I dared. I don’t believe it was a fluke that I saw you first. I believe there is another world waiting for us, Sixsmith. A better world, and I’ll be waiting for you there. I believe we do not stay dead long. Find me beneath the Corsican stars, where we first kissed.

Yours eternally, R.F.

I work from Irish release dates.

Good year for American cinema it seems. Overall, though, I had a hard time coming up with more than 6 films I really cared about. The last three films in this list could easily be shuffled around in any order or replaced with any of these honourable mentions:

The Selfish Giant (Clio Barnard)
Tom at the Farm
(Xavier Dolan)
Side Effects (Steven Soderbergh)
Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón)
Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (David Lowery)

but sure look. Hope u find something interesting or new here (but u probably won’t coz they were all pretty big/successful).

Quizás te hayas perdido: El Atlas de las Nubes

Una vez más los hermanos Watchowski nos brindan una adaptación cinematográfica, esta vez de la novela de David Mitchell, de la que, como hicieran con anterioridad con los cómics de V de Vendetta y Speed Racer, se adueñan, dotándola de su estilo personal y, para que negarlo, excéntrico.
