Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once ★★★★½

"Everything Everywhere All at Once" is ambitious, courageous, and sensational—a wildly maximalist yet unexpectedly heartfelt study of family values, nihilism, and the multiverse theory. Directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert assemble an array of clever and far-fetched ideas into something coherent and deliver their strongest work yet in a story that follows a mother suddenly tasked to save the fate of the multiverses by facing utterly bizarre situations.

Michelle Yeoh is simply outstanding in the film. Her versatility as an actress is on full display and she showcases a performance never-before-seen from her. Also excellent are Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu who commit wholeheartedly and show their versatility. Jamie Lee Curtis also provides something really surprising. The cast finds the right comedic timing and emotional beats, making the film a fully rambunctious ride. From laughing out loud in Part 1 to almost bawling in Part 2, I found the film a challenging, fun, and astute kind of cinema that many should admire.

Favorite moment: The Wong Kar-wai reference. So beautiful.
