Cloud Atlas (2012) – FilmSack Show Notest

INTRO

Oh hi,
Question One: What secret in the Wachowski’s 2012 movie adapted from a book would be worth killing 3 hour for?
Question Two: Is it reasonable to believe that this movie would not require me to turn on Closed Caption on Netflix to unlock that secret…a secret that is perhaps hidden in the True True language? maybe so…maybe no…and if so…
Question Three: What in the F…. name of Old Georgie hisself am I doing here?

Uh oh. Hold on a second guys…Who comes a rapping at my high rise apartment chamber door?….oh hi… Hey, listen guys…it’s the Wachowskis! They are banging trays and I do believe they intend to throw me off the balcony for what I done said about their movies over the year. I Gotta go….Speed Racer suuuuucked!

SHOW NOTES

  • Don’t start your movie with jibberish.
  • Closed Caption it is.
  • Question One: What Secret? Question Two: and if so…question 3…what the F am I doing here?
  • Civilized folk are hot because they are wearing 3 layers of wool and cotton.
  • It’s too hot for a whipping.
  • He passed out from worms?
  • “A tiger cannot change his stripes.”
  • The night of the Lemon Prizes
  • Let me get your attention by banging these trays together.
  • Woah…Finch is flying.
  • Found it . The thread to follow is not the actors but the stories that inspire (The Atlas?). Starting with Adam Ewing’s journal (only half) that is passed onto Robert Frobisher and then the letters he wrote to his lover are passed onto Luisa Rey (only parts and she hears the Cloud Atlas in the record store) her life is chronicled by her child neighbor (Jonas) in a story titled Half-Lives (A Lousisa Rey Mystery) which is read on the train by Cavendish (partially?) Cavendish life is portrayed by an actor (Hanks) in a film after Cavendish’s death and viewed in part by Sonmi-451. Sonmi goes on to inspire revolution and her words are echoed in the Teachings that Zachary learns but only in part.
  • Zachary mentions in the beginning his first meeting with Old Georgie eye to eye (the temptation Adam Ewing)
  • The Actor/Characters as they play to each period’s roles and how they respond and are influenced. Love and inspiration can travel through each period. Characters can have love affairs that last beyond a period of life.

INTRO

Oh hi,
Hey Shovel….while we are stuck here levitating in the upstairs bathroom of the house waiting for someone to open the door…I’ve been doing some serious thinking about how we got ourselves into this situation. I mean, I know I’m just a pair of Shrub Cutters…but to the best of my reasoning…the house has enchanted us with the gift of life. But to what end? I’m a still a little fuzzy on why are we trying to murder Roger? I mean up until this point I have just been following Axe’s lead ….but now I am starting to question things….like why Grass hook is hovering up into my personal space! Back up Grass hook!

Shh…listen…I think someone’s coming! Oh I hope it is one of the nosy neighbors! I would love to bury myself deep into that Harold guy and watch all the booze shoot out like a freshly tapped keg. Oh no! I’ve been gifted with life but all I desire is murder and mayhem! Axe…end my suffering with a swift swing! ….and so help me Grass Hook… by the name of the maker of tools….if you don’t back up…. I’ll will take you with me!

*Gasp* The door is open! Go Go Go…Kill anything that moves! GRASS HOOK GET OUT OF THE WAY! MAN YOU REALLY PUT THE ASS IN GRASS!

INTRO

Oh hi,

Listen up my young parachuting Comrades. We will be dropping you off in Colorado onto a mostly unoccupied field. Worst case scenario…the wind blows you to the parking lot of the local school where we are told that we could encounter some very light resistance. If that does happen….please do not shoot kids in the face who are simply looking out the windows of the school house. Remember, we are the good guys here.

Any questions? Yes, Ivan? “What do we do if some of the Jocks escape in a truck and head to the hills and create a troop of guerrilla fighters that force our hand to kill locals as retributions and as a result create a vicious cycle of revenge that never ends.” Ok Ivan, that is some serious foreshadowing. Just remember, we are the good guys here.

Yes Ernesto you have a followup? Will we meet any Young American Ladies that we can rape and pillage? Would someone please push Ernesto out of the plane. Thank you. But to answer his question. Just remember, we are the good guys here…so if you do rape and pillage be sure to wear a condom.

Ok…you know what….I think we may be the bad guys…so just forget all that stuff I said earlier….Let’s just go be bad guys!
