Everything Everywhere All at Once-Dir. by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, 2022


These times are begging for deeper truths to be told, colorful yarns to be spun, and heaps more love and understanding to be shared between human beings. Of course, these are tall orders, especially as forces that feed off of the opposite qualities of truth, color, love, and understanding are so broadly spread throughout creation. Despite this, people can still try. People such as directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, who have brought the incredible Everything Everywhere All at Once into this world. This film has a fascinating and brilliant and FRESH vision. It blends Surrealistic, psychedelic scenes with incredible performances from Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, James Hong, and Jamie Lee Curtis in a multi-universe saga of the battle between ontological forces that shape beings and elements within their respective realms. Every one of these great actors brings their absolute A Game to this production. They all shine as their characters move into various zones of various "realities", just so  convincing in each and every one.

Simple, yet very well done sets are utilized incredibly well, as are extras within the cast. The soundtrack absolutely kicks ass. Every damn piece of Everything is just fit perfectly, and Disaster Amnesiac is pleased as punch to have had it be the first movie that I've seen in a theater for over two goddamn years! Seriouly, if you like martial arts movies, or Surrealism, or good storytelling, or multiple-time stream theories, or Sci-Fi, you're going to want to run out and see this one on the big screen! 

No shit, go and see it!
