Cloud Atlas, the movie adaptation of a novel, gains polarized reviews.  Watching this movie that consists of 6 stories, initially I felt that it is unnecessarily complicated for a movie about fighting for freedom.  The makeup of the same actors in different stories, and the future English language (in one story) makes it worse for me.  After some google searches I think I understand more about it, and I believe if I were to watch it a second time, it should be more satisfying.  However, there are certain plot details, especially in the future worlds, that I found to be lacking.
