Everything Everywhere All At Once
This movie truly is everything, everywhere, all at once. The Daniels take a story about a woman trying to do her taxes and molds it into an epic battle where the fate of the multiverse is at stake. The film crosses the boundaries of genre, narrative, and tone to tell a compelling story of love in a nihilistic world. Few films are as philosophically positive as this one, as it’s easily the most optimistic film I’ve ever seen to examine handling a busy and uncaring existence. What keeps me invested in the film, beyond all the beautifully choreographed action and high concept sci fi, is Evelyn Quan Wang, played gracefully by Michelle Yeoh. Yeoh delivers an astounding performance as Evelyn, as she’s so grounded trying to process the madness around her, but her goals are all the same, trying to find balance her life. Everything Everywhere All At Once is truly unlike any film I’ve ever seen, as it basks in its creativity.
