Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once ★★★★★

I'll keep this simple, because every second you spend reading this review is time you could be spending watching this movie. In short: It's all the hype and more. It's a technical powerhouse, an audaciously entertaining rollercoaster ride, and a masterful course in philosophy that'll smash even the biggest nihilists to pieces, all rolled into the absolute best new movie since Parasite. I'm fully convinced this film has the power to help and heal those overwhelmed with ruminating existentialism - which, let's be honest, is all of us, at one point or another. It's a shattering reminder we're not alone, and that the human experience is a gift, despite being wrapped in the failed potential of a million different hindsights. Somehow, EEAAO finds a way to bite off as much as it can chew, yet still feels it's barely scratched the surface of its untapped subversion, especially in an industry whose motivator for pursuing it is so transparently rooted in algorithms. Scheinert and Kwan have no time for bullshit, and it shows, and I can't wait to see where they go from here as directors.

The future is bright, and it's the first time I've really believed it in years.
