'Cloud Atlas'

The book: "One of those how-the-holy-hell-did-he-do-it? modern classics that no doubt is -- and should be -- read by any student of contemporary literature." -- Dave Eggers. It was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize. Why it's "unfilmable": Primarily due to the structure. The book is a series of nested stories that go from the past to the future and back again. The movie: "A trash heap of rubber noses and implausible high school accents that give new meaning to the word "pretentious." -- Rex Reed, the New York Observer. "An intense three-hour mental workout rewarded with a big emotional payoff." -- Peter Debruge, Variety
