Sci-fi ‘Cloud Atlas’ is a movie unlike any other

There is something new going on in 21st century movies — a strain of films attempting to convey the entire experience of life in a single movie. Alejandro Inarritu has tried this, with lesser (“Babel”) and greater (“Biutiful”) success, and so has Terrence Malick (“The Tree of Life”). “Cloud Atlas,” more successful than most, is the biggest effort yet in this new vein — enormous in length and scope, a film whose purpose doesn’t even begin to come into focus until two hours in.
