Everyone's known it for years, despite everyone including Joel Silver denying it, but now it's been announced publicly.

Spent all that time on her hair. None on her teeth.

I just heard of this recently, but only saw the picture now. Hey, to each his/her own, but what the fuck?

But seriously, what is up with those teeth? You'd think she be able to afford a dentist after pouring Lord knows how much money into lopping her old dick off.

:affraid:

Agreed. The shocker isn't that Larry switched genders; it's that with all that Martrix money he has he couldn't make himself look like an attractive woman. He looks like something that turned up in a mosh pit at Lilith Fair.

Does this mean that Warner Brothers no longer has to issue Matrix royalty checks since Larry Wachowski no longer exists?

I bet there's a legal loophole, in the small print, that would suggest that is the case

Creating a loophole is part of the operation.

He could have just dressed up a woman, traveling under the name Lana Wood.

I'm going to take a wild guess here and assume Lana is also a lesbian. In addition to making movies, she also is a vegetarian who wears clothes made out of hemp.

Directed by the chap who directed Run Lola Run, so it should be intriguing. Looks interesting... And looking at the cast list on IMDB, stars three Bond actors: Halle Berry, Ben Winshaw and Gotz Otto.

It's not just a movie. It's every movie. At the same time.

Well having seen the trailer I confess I have no clue what it about and there seem more characters than I can ever really come to invest in, if fact I feel less informed and have less idea if I would enjoy the film than before I saw it :pale:

Quote :
Cloud Atlas disgraces Griffith’s legacy



The Lana and Andy Wachowski siblings have teamed up with German director Tom Tykwer to film Cloud Atlas, a nearly three-hour adaptation of the novel by David Mitchell. This filmmaking super group’s one movie feels like six bad movies.

Six stupid–as in unintelligent, unsophisticated–plotlines are meant to converge as a vision of spiritual connection throughout the ages. The Wachowskis directed a 1849 ocean voyage, 2144 revolution and a post-apocalyptic idyll in the 24th century. Tykwer helmed a 1936 gay love story, 1973 ecology thriller and 2012 social satire. The stories were edited by pomposity,

The film’s guiding principle is a pretentious, repeated motto: “Our lives are not our own. From Womb to Tomb we are bound to others. Every crime and kindness births our future.” This combines New Age doggerel to New Millennium cynicism as interminable as it is insufferable. The entire conceit lacks poetry. Its humanist pretext is constantly undercut by the reliance on violent spectacle that exposes the filmmakers’ basic insensitivity.

Another motto (“We all must fight and if necessary die to teach people the truth”) is a testament to supergroup arrogance. They equate epic filmmaking to social revolution. They want to turn fan boys into supergroupies. But they have forgotten (if they ever knew) the poetic coherence of D.W. Griffith’s magnificent 1916 Intolerance–still the greatest movie ever made–where stories from four time periods were interlaced according to the rhythm and logic of Walt Whitman’s “Out of the cradle, endlessly rocking.”

Griffith’s cross-cutting finale-the foundation of all cinema kinetics–literally rocks to this day while Cloud Atlas’ ineptitude seems endless. If the Wachowskis could get away with the futuristic nonsense of the Matrix movies, they might also find similarly gullible supergroupies this time as ignorant of Griffith as they are unenlightened about the clumsy mix of hippie philosophy, sci-fi speculation, p.c. agendas (involving sexual politics and slavery) and historical nonsense.

The Wachowskis–critic Gregory Solman always called them the Watch-Out-skis–and Tykwer needed the basic movie miracle: perfect casting. No such luck attended the involvement of Tom Hanks whose six roles lack Peter Sellers’ humor or Hallie Berry whose six roles stretch her thin talent to near invisibility–despite ludicrous prosthetic make-up.

Minus luck, Cloud Atlas needed the force of will and genius that produced Griffith’s Intolerance. Griffith’s inspiration resulted from his desire to invest a new medium with the narrative richness he knew from classic literature. He envisioned a new art form while this high-tech supergroup demote an established art form. Critic Andrew Sarris once said “Film is the art to which all the other arts aspire.” The Cloud Atlas supergroup don’t understand that fact. They cannot create a new era masterpiece when they disregard Griffith’s legacy. Will ignorant critics appreciate the difference?

Ballsy statement. And correct.

I'm guessing it's a film worth having a blow job to.

I applaud any man who can get wood while watching Asian Hugo Weaving.

Bloody hell, I thought Alec Guiness playing a Jap in that one movie looked bad enough, but this is ridiculous. laugh

Messy and derivative, but my mind keeps going back to it. Can't say that about many films.
