If you haven’t yet seen Everything Everywhere All At Once, run, don’t walk. This is the movie Marvel wished it made. At its core, the movie is about family, about the sacrifices one makes along the way, and about how relationships can save you. Without giving too much away, as a queer child of migrants myself, this movie had me crying more than any teenage fight with my parents ever did.
But EEAAO isn’t a one-trick pony. It also features some of the best physical comedy writing and acting I’ve seen in a long time, and some of the most well-choreographed stunts and fight scenes, too. This movie somehow blends the heart-wrenching emotion of all the dog movies you’ve ever seen with Matrix-level stunts and belly-laughs that rival the best comedy of all time: Shrek. (I will not be taking further questions.)
I’ve literally thought about this movie every day since I’ve seen it. The rich colours, the dizzying light-effects, and the goddamn outfits are living rent free in my frontal lobe for all eternity. This movie has probably done more for my familial relationships than therapy.
