“Just be a rock.”
I feel like the Daniels put me through a whirlwind of chaotic visuals and i’m left crippled with emotional whiplash, in the best way possible. A highly effective mega-charged journey with some of the best use of film references I could possibly think of, coupled with nonstop mind-boggling choreographed fight scenes that will leave you stunned, unexpectedly bizarre laugh-out-loud moments and an underlying story of the ups and downs of familial love. This is something so beautifully extraordinary and undeniably cool; packed with masterful editing and emotional connections!
Michelle Yeoh has never been better, but the real treasure here is the sweetheart of a human being Ke Huy Quan, who gives off one heartfelt and selfless performance—pulling right on my heartstrings Ke Huy. To be fair, each performance is so special and makes this movie mesh so perfectly well.
This is the kind of film that no matter how much you say about it, it’ll never amount to physically experiencing it. Everything Everywhere All at Once reminds me of why I love watching movies, watching storytellers bring something so refreshing and unmatched for their fans to hype up and get wide-eyed over. A film that will make you feel everything all at once— because at the end of the day that’s what we all want out of a film, right? I left the theater asking myself imagine being the Daniels and creating THAT… how the hell did this get made? But how overjoyed I am that it freaking exists.
If the Daniels keep pumping out these entertaining as hell original stories I’m going to fucking explode.
