EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE (2022)
Brilliant storytelling and superb acting solidifies Everything Everywhere All At Once as once of the best movies of the year thus far, if not the best, combining action, humor, and palpable heart.
Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) is just trying to get her taxes right when reality around her explodes into a multiversal battle for the future. Everything Everywhere All At Once is a mind-blowing roller coaster of original storytelling that will leave audiences in awe of its ability to pull it all off. Yeoh is a sensation from start to finish, displaying every visceral emotion possible as the story blossoms from simple family drama to multilayered science fiction extravaganza. While the film bites off quite a lot, it succeeds in delivering and tying up any loose ends that exist, never once losing focus of the heart at its core. Jamie Lee Curtis brings the laughs in every scene she is present in, kickstarting the continuous humor that Everything Everywhere All At Once carries until the final frames. Add in Stephanie Hsu and Ke Huy Quan and you have a family that you’ll be be rooting, even through the ups and downs.
Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert have delivered something that has never before been seen in theaters, a remarkable achievement in the age of big-budget superhero properties and other ravaging of established intellectual property. It’s a film that truly leaves you feeling exhausted in the best way, as if you just experienced everything possible in a theater. I cannot imagine a project such as this, one with a script that has such complicated depth, brought to life with any other cast. Visually stunning and emotionally poignant, while often ridiculous in the best way, Everything Everywhere All At Once is one of the best films of 2022 thus far.
Everything Everywhere All At Once is now playing in theaters.
