Wachowski’s ‘CLOUD ATALAS’ Screened At Cannes, Is Almost Three Hours Long.

I have no clue what the novel Cloud Atlas  is about. No damn clue. Everything I know about it has been derived from reading news reports about the Wachowski’s adaptation of it, and all these news bits tell me its a bit of an unwieldy tome.

The Wachowskis And Tom Hanks Team-Up For ‘Cloud Atlas.’

I’m probably alone on this, but I fucking miss The Wachowskis. Sure, the Matrix sequels were heartbreaking, but they essentially made V for Vendetta, and I thought Speed Racer was fucked-up, absurd madness. A  sugary mindfuck that seems like a progenitor to Scott Pilgrim.

So I’m pretty stoked at the news that they’ll be teaming up with Tom Hanks for ‘Cloud Atlas.’
