I’m getting a little tired of the multi-story being full of multiples. It’s all over MCU and next year, The Flash. So who, if anyone, is going to do it right? Well, we have a winner! From the filmmaking team called the Daniels (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), the award goes to their film Everything everywhere at once. It’s full of twists and turns, and wonderfully weird moments that must be kept secret for maximum enjoyment. So the summary of the following plot is very small.
Michelle Yeoh plays Evelyn, a Los Angeles-based Chinese immigrant mother who runs a laundromat with her husband Waymond (Ke Huy Quan) and daughter Joy (Stephanie Hsu). Evelyn’s father, Gong Gong (James Hong), lives with them in the apartment attached to the laundromat (a very Asian thing to do). Unfortunately, she is in big trouble. First, the bad IRS detective Deirdre (Jamie Lee Curtis) examines the laundromat. Second, Waymond tries to find the right time to give Evelyn divorce papers. Finally, Joy is upset that her mother is refusing to accept her boyfriend, Becky (Tallie Medel).
On this day, Evelyn is at the IRS building for the formal investigation and has to explain some dubious purchase, especially a karaoke machine. If she can’t do that to Deirdre ‘s satisfaction, Evelyn could lose everything. On the elevator, Waymond has a version of himself from another reality. He warns Evelyn that the IRS is the least of its problems and that it needs to take three weird steps to prevent the fall of heterogeneity. We’ve about twenty minutes in, and trust me, it’s all going out of this crazy batshit.
“I found a way to knock down the multiverse and this Evelyn is special the same man in infinite righteousness who will stop it. “
I would also say that there is a big baddie, called Jobu Tobacky, who has found a way to lose the heterosexuality and this particular Evelyn is the only one in the infinite realities who can stop him. The reason that would blow your mind, as much of it Everything everywhere at once. The virtual jerseys use hidden technology such as Bluetooth headphones that allow them to jump into the bodies of other versions of themselves and summon the skills of all Evelyns, such as Evelyn the dancer, martial artist, opera singer , and all other endless. The process for these sweaters is absolutely inspiring.
The film is so much in love. Screenshots are one of the greatest achievements of all time. Nothing is wasted – not a one-sided character, a joke, a beak, or a plot point. Each element serves a purpose for the whole story. All the roads come full circle and neatly tidy themselves up, including a reference to Pixar’s Ratatouille.
Hunger is extreme. Michelle Yeoh can’t do anything wrong and she doesn’t hit on fake notes playing a wide range of her own. I am so pleased to see Ke Huy Quan return, and the presence of former Chinese – American actor James Hong is very special. Even though he plays an old man in a wheelchair, you can see a side of him that goes far beyond the countless support roles he has done over the decades. Finally, Stephanie Hsu has a Chinese-American immigrant baby down pat.
Take my advice! Everything everywhere at once must have experience in theater, if a full audience is preferred. There are screams, weird moments, and a knock down of Jamie Lee Curtis that needs to be shared with a community of cinema lovers. As for the whole heterogeneous thing, you have to pay attention. It’s not complicated to follow (at least not for my brilliant Asian mind), but it’s not taking a moment to relax. The action comes to you quickly and wildly, with wonderful moments of silence that blow your mind when it happens.
Warning: the two-hour run time feels like two hours. You may end up tired and exhausted, but it’s well worth the trip.
