Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once

i listened to an interview with hanif abdurraqib before rewatching this and couldn't help but share a snippet: “i think, to not just speak for my “self” but to speak for the reality that i am someone who carries with me multiple selves. and to carry those multiple selves means that i have to again honor not just who i am in one moment, but honor the fluidity of moments to come.”

aside from the larger theme, there’s something i feel in this film that recognizes our complexity and honors it. often we mold ourselves into what is expected of us or dilute ourselves, feeling like it’s taming the chaos of the plethora of versions within, our inner multiverse. but i think, like hanif describes, self-love starts with accepting one’s irrational landscape of selves, and difficult task of trying to be kind and tend to each.
