Viva Eva! — a musical theme in progress ~

Every thing has to start somewhere–or does it?

“From the beginning of beginning-less time.”

No endings, no beginnings, just be-ing.

I suspect I’ve been OVER thinking Johnny’s theme choice.

Go figure.

Okay, here’s how my warm-up music theme flows. Perhaps what’s significant to moi will resonate with some of you. If you have other music notions, please share them at will.

Into the Interconnectedness of All Things? Then explore ‘Cloud Atlas’ from one mind shore to another.

I’ve encountered a few folks who can’t seem to make heads or tails of this film. Does that signify some fundamental dysfunction with their brain-pans or something else? I have no idea. Some people find this film too confusing to follow. Others seem blind to its subject/theme/ideas — much like the people who complain about the ‘details’ in The Lone Ranger while missing out on the huge outraged SHOUT against injustice the film serves. Yes, The Lone Ranger is much more than a fun gig when it takes on genocide, exploitation of everyone and everything, and the military – industrial complex. If you can’t ‘see’ that then perhaps we might have a little film dissection course online at some point in time.  But–Cloud Atlas is the name of this post game. Yes, I’ve beat the drum for this film previously. And I’ll probably beat it again in the future. It’s not a perfect film–but it is a truly GREAT film for all it endeavors to accomplish. It’s not an accident that it is the film it is.

Enjoy the trailer.

Anyone have any other film to recommend that even comes close to the quality of Cloud Atlas? Come on, I know there are all sorts of things going on in the universe about which I have no clue. Share and share alike, please.

OOps, yes, Cloud Atlas is also a book by David Mitchell.  —>>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_Atlas_(novel)   Yep, the Wikipedia piece is rather interesting all by itself.  Hmm, something about the first edition cover art is just so engaging to my eye.

 

Sensual Sci-Fi Saturday Sounds — Oh yeah, we got some serious sweet stuffing for the earpieces.

I could easily keep going with this musical scoring, but hey, the post uploading just might overdo things at my end of cyber-land.  Sooooooo, from the incredible Cloud Atlas, the very fun Fifth Element, the painfully timely Avatar, the life water of the Fountain and all the way Until the End of the World here’s some real deals via the world of illusion aka film. Oh yes, and the questions of what is it to be alive and human and love life a la Blade Runner.

Cloud Atlas — A lovely vision of how truly wonderful films can be.

Having seen a few great, some very good, and many just good films lately and over the course of time, I can honestly say that Cloud Atlas completely blows every other film totally out of the water for sheer creativity in actualizing the potential of films for depth of narrative, visual beauty, acting and scope of vision.  It’s a truly beautiful film on multiple levels. If you have not yet seen Cloud Atlas then do yourself a huge favor and make time to view it as soon as possible.  It’s lengthy, complex, involved and demands complete attention.  I would love to comment extensively but that might limit your own acts of exploration and discovery while engaged with this piece of artistry. Yes, this is Film As Art and it’s quite incredibly spectacular!

How open is your mind?
