The Top 10 Movies Of 2012: Sean's List
9. Cloud Atlas
Cloud Atlas ends up being the one movie on this list that I admire more than adore. Because it’s undeniably impressive in so many facets, though, it merits inclusion. This is epic storytelling, with a dazzling ensemble of willing day players (including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving, Keith David and Doona Bae) daring to connect multiple narratives that span generations, yet all speak to the unifying fibers of destiny, hope and love. A gorgeous and ambitious tour-de-force, Cloud Atlas may be a lot to process in one sitting. But in their hulking tome, the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer have bestowed invaluable life lessons that can be culled and cherished for generations.
Best Moment: Duh. Any fookin’ scene with Tom Hanks laying on a thick cockney accent to play a brutish, British thug in 2012 London. Oy!
