    i believe that this film basically summed up how i have felt my whole life. That we as human beings...are subconsciously connected with each other. Our path-journey during our life cycle intersects with each other or always cross paths with each other. This is why we literally always have deja-vu moments, where we think we know someone or, somewhere/someone seem interestingly familiar to us. I cant believe they managed to develop this theory and make it into a film. What do you guys think of the premise of such a theory? Watch the trailer. lemme know. Bear in mind this film will only click to philosophical minds...so if your all about action...this might not be for you. But if your about philosophy, abundant possibilities..you will love it.

    If you are interested in the philosophical nature of this film, you may be interested in Yoga and the teachings of Patanjali.

    “Yoga says instinct is a trace of an old experience that has been repeated many times and the impressions have sunk down to the bottom of the mental lake. Although they go down, they aren’t completely erased. Don’t think you ever forget anything. All experiences are stored in the chittam; and, when the proper atmosphere is created, they come to the surface again. When we do something several times it forms a habit. Continue with that habit for a long time, and it becomes your character. Continue with that character and eventually, perhaps in another life, it comes up as instinct.”

    It's been so long since Tom Hanks has actually been in a good movie that I will believe it when I see it. This does look pretty incredible though.

    Trailer looks really good. Reminds me of Lost's alternate reality and overlapping timeline themes, but kicked up a notch.

    update..Just got the book..got a good quick read while on the metro home...and man.....lost for words...i now know ill be M.I.A for a week and a half from family and friends lol...This novel is purely all about possible theories..about life, living multiple lives at once, your present action leading to multiple reactions in another timeline or reality..im loving it..this is why im a sci -fi junkie.

    Great book! I have read it multiple times and everytime I read it I find something I didn't notice before. Can't wait for the movie I just hope they are able to pull such a complex storyline off.

    Just so those who haven't gotten the book yet know, two completely different Cloud Atlas novels came out w/in months of each other. (Ikr? W/ a name like that, what're the odds?) Read the one David Mitchell wrote.

    I just saw Cloud Atlas last night and fragments of it are still flitting through my mind, and I'm trying to sort out all of the various threads. I will definitely need to read the book now. I read David Mitchell's The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet last year, and it was mind-blowingly good.

    I find the premise really interesting, and have wondered myself at times whether the people we cross paths with in life are people who may have been connected to us in some manner that transcends death and time. One of the messages I liked best from the film is that the characters that "worked it all out" as they moved through the various permutations of their live seemed to find some peace and nobility of spirit. It's very akin to Buddhism in that respect, and elements of Hinduism as well.

    I also liked the treatment of the gay characters; their deep love for each other was handled in a very respectful, forthright way.

    It certainly looks an interesting film, but I suspect it will be considerably simplified compared to the novel.

    Many of the ideas in the book and film seem drawn from eastern religions and mysticism.
