Is it too early to say that “Everything Everywhere All at Once” is the best film of the year?
It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It has the funniest and craziest scenes you can ever imagine. It’s impossible to describe the full picture. Writer/Director Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, known as the Daniels, wrote and directed one of the most original films of recent years, and Michelle Yeoh is the ultimate powerhouse here who guilds us into this complex multiverse.
It’s remarkable and wild. It’s about the American Dream and its failure of it. It’s also about the overwhelming, annoying noises of the current climate. But deep down, it’s a bittersweet story of families: mother-to-daughter, daughter-to-father, husband-to-wife, and human-to-human. Somehow, the film just feels so personal and it’s impossible not to love it.
And most important of all, please please please watch it in the theater with a butch of strangers. At least in my case, people were laughing, screaming, cheering, and crying all at once, which is everything you can ask for a perfect moviegoing experience.
