    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★½

    I’ve always wondered what would happen in someone’s mind if they mixed acid with adderall…with this movie, we now have the answer.

    Visually speaking, this movie is astonishing (especially given that the Daniels weren’t working with a massive budget), but the plot and dialogue just fall totally flat for me. Similar to Swiss Army Man, the concept is brilliant but they tend to skip past the basic principals of storytelling to accommodate all other facets of the production.  I’m all for experimental/non-cohesive films (re: most of David Lynch’s work), but this one felt like it totally lost the thread.

    Members of Radiohead once admitted that they would pull random phrases or words out of a hat and write a song around them.  I feel like this is how David Lynch writes and directs a lot of his work.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Meh.

    Highlights:
    - Zoë Kravitz
    - The score…it really feels like another character in the movie at times
    - That weird warped lense Reeves was using throughout the movie to phase out the surroundings in a shot
    - Zodiac killer-esque mystery 
    - Pattinson. He understood the assignment. *Maybe* the best pure Batman. 
    - Jeffrey Wright’s Gordon, who is neck-and-neck with Oldman’s version

    Lowlights:
    - Sort of a wasted end result for the Riddler, where ultimately he’s just this QAnon-type loser…
