My wife and I finally saw Cloud Atlas last evening and both of us were disappointed at its length, 2 3/4 hours, its violence and the disjointed story lines, making it hard to follow. Cloud Atlas tells six separate, but connected stories, over a period of 300+ years, and three different directors told two stories each. Some of the dialogue was very difficult to understand, partly due to my hearing loss. Sub-titles would be a welcome addition to the film. The best part of the film in the opinion of some were the computer graphics depicting New Seoul, Korea, approximately 130 years in the future. They were a brilliant cross of Matrix, Tron and Star Wars.
