The last review I put up for this movie was a simple acknowledgement that I don't have a review for it. I watched it almost 3 weeks before my 18th birthday, which was also about two months before my first short was finished.

Everything, Everywhere, All at once.
We live in an age where we can choose reality. Facts are flexible, truth malleable, objective reality questionable at best.
The perspective we have is a choice. Sometimes we choose what we've been given, sometimes for a good reason, sometimes for no reason. Sometimes we refuse what we're given, sometimes for a good reason, sometimes for a bad reason. Regardless. A choice.
Everything, Everywhere, All at once. A choice.
