  1. Looking forward to Cloud Atlas, and am glad that Lana has the courage to stand up in such a public arena, for the benefit of other LGBT (particularly the T) people, love and respect to Lana’s bravery.

    I really hope this is well received as a film. I look forward to seeing it and hope it has the effect Lana wants – would be great if it does.

  3. This film sounds great. The more I hear about it, the more I want to go see it. I wish Lana luck for the future as well, she’s obviously been through a lot and being trans myself I can empathise with her.

  4. Arrrgh I can’t believe we have to wait til 2013 to see when it is already out in the US!

  5. That’s nice, Lana, but yellow-face and brown-face are still racist. I’m sure there are ways to fight transphobia without insulting POC (including all the Trans POC who’ve been voicing their complaints about the use of racist tactics like yellow-face for years…)

  6. What a shame: it flopped. :( All the same, films like this are about more than just making a load of cash. I’m sure that a lot of people will find it interesting and stimulating… I can only hope.

    1. Ah, yes, I am looking now on Wikipedia, it was already released and the box office was sufferable. What a pity. Despite making terrible films like Speed Racer and the two sequels of Matrix I like the Wachowski siblings and I really wished them success, the same which can’t be said about Michael Bay.

    2. I really, really hope it didn’t flop because ignorant people decided they didn’t want to watch a film “made by that tranny pervert”. If so, their loss, but still very sad for Ms. Wachowski.

  7. The film was good, but has nothing to do with trans or gender issues at all. The closest thing to GLBT issues in this film is Lana herself.
