I was actually very handsome as a baby. Then I had plastic surgery after an accident where a goat ate my face off. The funny thing is instead of using a human face they used a goats butt.

they worked really closely with mitchell though (he even made a brief cameo), and he gave the film his blessing.

the wachowskis are at their best when they have an actual author writing most of their dialogue.


As a movie it has its flaws that can only really be addressed by adding more screentime, and its treatment of racebending could have been handled better (e.g. in the book there's an actual comment on how people in Nea So Copros/Neo-Seoul have so much plastic surgery their eyes and faces look uncanny-valley, they could have had that line in the movie to explain away some of the bad yellowface).

But it is unironically and completely sincerely my favorite film. I cried when I first watched it and I watch it again every few months. It's so absolutely gorgeous. The book made me cry too, and the film captures a lot of what's so wonderful about the text.

Cloud Atlas might have worked better as a miniseries, I agree that more time was needed and it was already so long. I'm kind of a structure nut when reading and Cloud Atlas was one of the first seriously nonlinear novels to make an impression on me, so I missed that element of the book an awful lot.

I really did love how they brought the language out in the Sloosha's Crossing bit because that part had me literally breathless when I read it.

The entire premise of the game is this unconventional way to uncover different storylines, and your ability to dictate the way the story is told through your interaction. Honestly the story would be very, very flimsy in a medium where you're not actually doing something. It's cooler to have it in front of you in many different fashions in this old house than it would be to just read it.

That's why, to me, narrative videogames are cool. You get to interpret the story differently than anyone else, because no matter what choices you're making, you're viewing this content in a different way, even if marginally.
