    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    “It’s fitting, really, that just a little under four months after ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ ravaged the global box office and satiated the nostalgic desires of an audience that couldn’t be more slaphappy for a $200 million dollar cluster of cross-generational IPs and only a couple weeks before yet another multiverse-centered MCU movie is set to be churned out, that ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ was released.

    “That was weird.”

    lord knows this isn’t the most visually inventive ghibli film, but i think this might be miyazaki’s most formally interesting effort. the cartoonishly expressive style that it embraces and the buttery smooth on ones animation create an effortlessly exhilarating sense of movement—not to sound like an absolute degenerate, but it’s a shame that water and the ocean don’t look this cool in real life or even in any other animated film. i also forgot just how much…

    “That was my first contact with Ozu, as well as my worst contact.”

    might watch this again so i could actually look at the animation and visuals instead of speed reading the subtitles; slow the fuck down, man
