SO CLOUD ATLAS is maybe the best film ever, and considering that an entire sixth of the novel is dedicated to the writing of an impossibly beautiful score, I was rather afraid that the film would fail to deliver in this, (if not it all aspects), for how does one simply achieve that almost insurmountable task of writing a score that transcends experience and unpicks reality. WELL turns out Tykwer, Klimek and Heil DELIVER
It’s been a week since I saw the film but listening to ALL BOUNDARIES ARE CONVENTIONS this morning whilst reading a disturbing text: [ http://www.opendemocracy.net/openindia/britta-ohm/public-against-democracy-case-of-gujarat-pogrom-2002 ]
I was instantly transported away from this tarnished world to a land I’ve only ever glimpsed in dreams.
Here is a preview of the soundtrack, it like gets going and then cuts off, and leaves you SCREAMING for more, so I think the only real solution is to go buy it right now if it even piques your interest, as I am sure it shall.
