    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    The transcendental feeling I've sought and want to give.

    UPD: This film has really helped me reflect on what it means to cherish/find happiness with who & what we do have....amongst what matters most, especially these days and as we get older.

    Turning Red

    ★★★★★

    THIS is what coming of age can be. Heck, this is what Art can be for a better world. Just, wow: beautiful, compassionate, deeply empathetic, absurdly fun and funny. You gotta be bone-headedly plain-ass sad-cynical-asinine to not relate or/and connect to any which one of these wholesome lovable characters and themes. Take it from a hero-nihilist—I genuinely recommend you take time to see Turning Red. The most heartfelt and exciting Asian-Canadian representation I've seen in film and simultaneously it couldn't be more universal with its heart and ways to get us caring more for one another. Bravo bravo bravo.
