Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once

an exhaustingly chaotic maximalist cringefest with perhaps the most cluttered and subversive execution imaginable, somehow resulting in an overwhelmingly beautiful and hopeful conclusion that brought me to tears. this does overflow with creativity, infusing the frustrating concept of multiverses with ambition and care through an explosion of zaniness and pure sensory overload from the electrifying editing, intense lighting, and outrageous costumes. and as ironic as this sounds, this truly is one of those films that manages to touch on just about everything , from generational trauma to romance, to familial love, to acceptance, to nihilism, to destinies and decisions and a million other things stuffed into one wildly imaginative and goofy project. though at times the film feels bloated and held back by corniness, overindulgence and truism, everything else about it is just too wacky and emotionally resonant that i honestly couldn't care. getting to experience the entire theatre collectively losing their shit over the sheer audacity of some sequences really elevates the experience. we need more modern films pulling unique and absurd shit like this !!
