WHAT'S IT ABOUT

Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) is stressed out. She’s dealing with financial issues at the laundromat she runs with her loving-but-alienated husband, a strained relationship with her daughter, as well as trying to impress her elderly father who is visiting from China. All before learning that she may be the only thing that can prevent a cataclysmic multiversal force from destroying existence across infinite realities.

    The best stories are those delivered without any spoilers or hint as to what’s to come. The first 15 minutes of EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE is about a family struggling to deal with each other and an IRS audit. And it’s heartfelt and earnest. Then the magician’s flourish reveals a hidden story of wonder and complexity that takes your breath away. A joyous and frenetic intensity takes over and you’re soon lost in a world of unpredictable whimsy.

    I can’t say it’s a perfect film - it has some problems here and there - but I can say I truly didn’t care about them at all. Original storytelling trumps any technical shortcomings and this is simply a wonderful ride to lose yourself in.

    For the first time in a long time, I got to see something FRESH in the cinema. A truly bizarre and emotionally resonant film that delivers equal parts genuine philosophical depth, unique and stylish action sequences, consistently excellent dramatic and comedic performances, and manages to somehow make these elements work as a consistent whole.

    The structure of the movie, the narrative (narratives?), and the visuals are a hyperactive and chaotic mess, as if half a dozen different films have been piled into a blender and still somehow resulted in something genuinely beautiful.

    Everything Everywhere All At Once is an apt title, it’s a relentless and almost-overwhelming sensory experience that manages to not only deliver on it’s ambitious premise, but does so in a hilarious, heartfelt, and surprisingly heart-warming way. 5 out of 5 stars
