Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once

in the age of the Grey Concrete action aesthetic, extremely bold and impressive to turn a SoCal IRS office into one of the most dynamic, layered and surprisingly beautiful battle settings in recent memory.

the kind of great where it's hard to not just list everything about it that delighted/moved/astounded me (every Michelle Yeoh!! every Ke Huy Quan!! Jamie Lee Curtis!! Tallie Medal!! etc.!!), where I keep thinking of things I love about it long after my screening, and the first post-lockdown movie I know I'm going to make a second theatrical trip for. slides fluently between the high- and lowbrow in the way only Daniels can, with their maximalist aesthetic refined to a T and built around a knockout emotional core; some real sicko could double bill this with Turning Red lmao. hard to say something like "I can't believe this got made and I'm so happy it did" with a straight face, but sometimes it's all you've got
