Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once ★★★★½

The title certainly isn't a lie: in that what Daniels bring us here is a film that utilizes the multiverse concept in a rather eccentric, existential, and wholly thoughtful manner that hits that perfect balance of being laugh-out-loud funny and really emotional. Everything Everywhere All at Once blasts as much as it can right on the spot; visually I can't help but feel like I see a lot of callbacks to the films of Terry Gilliam (and even on one occasion, Wong Kar-wai), and Daniels certainly utilize this to perfectly capture a feeling of being overwhelmed on the spot.

But there's also a lot I feel I could write about the fact that Michelle Yeoh really is just a treasure for the screen. She's always having so much fun in the action, but it's the way she fits that into playing someone who's so overwhelmed by the world she's living in, that leaves me just completely in awe. Truly one of the best working actresses, in a role that really gives her room to show everything that she's capable of on the spot. I can't wait to see this again.
