Review of ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’

There are movies that you instantly know that this is “the one”. It grabs you from the very beginning, and as a human being who has watched a few thousands of movies, you tell yourself: “this is going to be good.” You are aware of it during the opening credits, and gradually come to the longed for realization that humanity still has creativity.

Well, simply for that fact, it makes it worth the view. But the movie has even more to offer than the opening credits; it pleasantly surprises, as it takes you through a surreal whirlwind of mixed feelings. It is funny, tender, empathetic, and it knows how to make the most of what it has to do with (note that its is not Titanic that has been produced here, hence the means to make good for are far more limited). Let us use the metaphor of a washing machine: it as if your head is put into one and it is centrifuged (figuratively) spinning many times over, and the “ride” is so much that you would rather not get out of it. The multiverses it visits, which are the ones the movie enters, are enthralling.

It manages to maintain a narrative structure that follows a good rhythm, it knows how to swing and swirl, in funny twists and turns, making the viewing experience a pure joyride.

This is yet another move a la “because I am worth it”, and oh well, it certainly does live up to that slogan.

We recommend this movie for its originality and humorous and humane approach to weirdness.

It is a fabulous blend of genres in a multiverse that, by the looks of it, is going to give us many good ideas.

Movie Reviews

“A mind-melting masterpiece (…) There’s a lot of movie in this movie — a spiraling, sweeping, stunning descent into madness followed by a stirring call for healing, and for kindness.”

Jacob Hall: SlashFilm

“An emotional, philosophical, and deeply weird trip through the looking glass into the multiverse (…) Michelle Yeoh gives a virtuoso performance.”

Marya E. Gates: The Playlist 

[It] is insanely imaginative and often a lot of fun. But at two hours-plus, it becomes unrelenting and wearisome.
