Cats

Description

"Cats" is a 2019 British-American musical film, directed by Tom Hooper and based on the musical of the same name by Andrew Lloyd Webber, which in turn was based on T.S. Eliot's 1939 poetry collection "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats". The film features an ensemble cast including James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, and Francesca Hayward. It was released on December 20, 2019, and received overwhelmingly negative reviews from critics and audiences alike.

The film follows a group of "Jellicle" cats who meet at a ball to decide who will ascend to the "Heaviside Layer" and be reborn into a new life. The story is told through song and dance, with each cat introducing themselves and telling their unique story. Meanwhile, a villainous cat named Macavity tries to sabotage the proceedings and become the chosen one.

Despite featuring an all-star cast and being directed by an Oscar-winning director, "Cats" was widely criticized for its unsettling CGI, nonsensical plot, and bizarre musical numbers. Many viewers found the film to be a surreal and uncomfortable experience, with some describing it as a "cult classic" in the making. Despite its poor reception, "Cats" was still nominated for several awards, including a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Picture.

Undoubtfully, cinematography has been my passion since a very young age. Even now, watching a new movie or series always prompts me to ask a lot of questions to the author. Thus, every little essay about a title is definitely not a spoiler, but rather an attempt to explore the idea.

A tremendously successful book Cloud Atlas, which was written by British author David Mitchell in 2004, is laid in the basement of next brothers Wachowsky's movie Cloud Atlas. Of course, no one has expected that Matrix's creators will film something small, but it seems like Cloud Atlas outperformed any possible expectation. The film is so advanced in the meaning of CGI graphics and complicity of the twisted plot that it's undoubtedly destined to become another milestone in cinema industry alongside with The Matrix and Avatar. The movie consists of six stories nailed on each other in some weird way. All of the showcased stories are suddenly interrupting at some point except the last one. The first story begins in 1850 on a frigate sailing across the Pacific Ocean; this story is read by the character of the next story as a diary in 1931 which story is read in letters by Luisa Rey a journalist California, 1975 who writes a manuscript for the novel which is read by Timothy Cavendish, in 21th century UK which story was laid in the center of documentary movie which is watched by Sonmi~451, a genetically-engineered clone in not so distant future who rises a rebellion against totalitarian regime which is lead to "The Fall", an apocalypses which destroys a civilization and forms a tribal societies on Earth. One of the tribesman watches a Sonmi~451's story as holographic movie on his "Orison" device. All the six stories which are nested in the film look like seamlessly connected with each other in the way we did not realize until the movie reaches its turning point, and then we travel back in time from story to story completing them in reverse order and realizing that "Everything is connected".
