Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once ★★★★★

Most of the best sci-fi movies succeed by taking the extraordinary and grounding it in deep, relatable emotions that everyone connects with. Arrival, Interstellar, Wall-E. Whatever your enjoyment, you can’t argue the emotional core is there in all of them. Everything Everywhere All At Once does this to an incredible degree. It takes the multiverse—seemingly the movies’ favourite thing right now—and ignores the giant concepts, instead focusing on Michelle Yeoh’s Evelyn, and how it affects her and her family, packing it chock-full of heart. It’s beautiful and funny and heart-breaking and action-packed, and beautiful again. The emotional catharsis in this is just amazing—it pays out like a slot machine. 

Saw this at an advance screening, and will definitely watch again on its wide release.
