Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once ★★★★★

I watched this with my family, they didn’t know what it was about at all, so watching them get very confused and perplexed by the film as it goes along was very funny. My mum’s only reaction at the end was “that was a lot”. My dad didn’t say much at all. My sister loved it. I’ll count that as win

I don’t think this movie is flawless per se, but the sheer talent of the Daniels, their understanding of tone and emotion, their imagination and visual creativity, their comedic sense and their pure heart all comes together to create something that feels absolutely perfect, bolstered by incredible performances. It’s such a special film that elevates itself the more it goes on, because the Daniels have such incredible control over what they’re doing. The flaws end up feeling nebulous because what’s the point in even considering them when everything else is this good, when everything else is this life affirming action comedy with a true heart. It’s a deeply special, beautiful film that comes from unique and special filmmakers. What a movie.
