Book Turned Movie and Completely Desecrated

Cloud Atlas

Book by David Mitchell; Film by the Wachowskis

 

Cloud Atlas by David MitchellCloud Atlas film

 

Reasons: I found the movie to be exceptionally boring and incapable of properly handling the themes. I found the yellowface to be tasteless and offensive. The story interwove so often that, even though I had read the book prior to watching it, I was confused. I don't see how someone who'd never read the book could get anything out of that movie. Honestly, I was so bored that a third-way through watching I just had it on as background noise while I did the dishes. Disappointing when the source material is handled so superbly.
