I went to see Cloud Atlas the other day and just had to draw Timothy Cavendish.
His storyline was without a doubt my favourite. Loads of funny moments to break away from the rest of the film’s serious tone, the characters are adorable (“I know! I know!”), and I think that Timothy with his enlarged eyes and goofy smile looks like something out of a Pixar film. Also, I can’t get over what a masculine nurse
Agent Smith Hugo Weaving is.
I did like the rest of the film as well, though the way it is structured (and fractured) was a bit confusing at first but as the six different storylines slowly intertwine and just make sense, you’ll stop thinking about it.
Sonmi~431′s storyline was interesting because of the visual style but it was hard to understand Bae Doona’s accent. Not the mention the strange use of uncanny valley yellowface/monolid makeup in the sequence.
I know the reviews for it has been lukewarm, but don’t take the critics’ word for it, Cloud Atlas is something you need to see yourself before making your mind about it. I still need to watch it another 2-3 times to fully understand the film, but it left me with a great feeling after watching it. Definitely an experience!
