Everything Everywhere All at Once

Everything Everywhere All at Once ★★★★

"You think because l'm kind that it means I'm naive, and maybe I am. It's strategic and necessary. This is how I fight."

It’s been three days since I finally watched the maximalist hit of the year, and I’m just now learning that Daniels wrote an entire Raccacconie song with Randy Newman about being a family, culinarily. Yes it’s kind of a rehash of the song from James and The Giant Peach but still, that’s how you go above and beyond with your art, my friends.

I'm really looking forward to when I get to rewatch this with subtitles on, much earlier in the day and not as an unintended follow-up to Men: I can only handle so many mind-fucks in a day, regardless of which of them are successful at it or not. It somehow proves that less is more (small cast, mostly in the IRS building, shockingly minimal VFX team) and more is more all at the same time. Hot dog fingers, a black hole bagel, and "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)" existing across multiple realties are somehow all tied for the weirdest things I wasn't expecting to see.

Based on the five total minutes we get of the movie star universe, Wong Kair-Wai needs to come out of retirement and put Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan in a romance movie together immediately.
