Comedy Film Nerds sends Dean Haglund to talk to Tom Hanks and Halle Berry about Cloud Atlas, conventions, action figures, Mazes and Monsters, and reincarnation.
Remember in college when you got super high and you said shit like, “We are totally connected so whatever I do now affects the future and what I did in past affects me now AND the past, present, and future exists right now so as infinite as the universe is outward we are inward, dude.” And then you tried to write it down but next morning the only thing the paper said was “the window is open?” Luckily, someone had Dragon-Voice recognition software and got a 1,500 page novel out of that experience and that has been made into a movie called Cloud Atlas.
