Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once ★★★★★

Letterboxd is ruining movies for me. I came in knowing how loved this film was so instead of enjoying it, I spent 40 minutes just challenging EVERYTHING I saw on screen. I wanted to find flaws every step of the way. EVERYWHERE I looked I saw problems (too much exposition about how the multiverse works, etc.). But eventually I let go. And I started to like it. But I couldn’t let myself love it.  I walked out of the theater saying I’d give it 3.5/5 stars. My friend yelled at me asking for a real analysis. He was right. When did I let film analysis become so simple? When did I let it become a simple rating system? So, I told him all I disliked and all I felt changed my life. I realized how much this movie altered my perception…for the moment, at least. Scenes kept replaying in my head. Then ALL AT ONCE I found myself falling in love. But God damn it. Did they have to sensor the butt plug? Keeping it in un-blurred would’ve been the boldest choice I’ve ever seen on screen. So, yeah. I need to remember I have my own opinions. I have the right to think for myself.
