    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    Exposition and social commentary sort of detracted from this being a 5/5 for me.

    I sort of prefer films like this to have absolutely no narrative structure, message or connection to reality whatsoever. Just give me pure random chaos and dope B roll.

    Absurd.

    So much of this was absurd I wouldn’t even know where to start. This was built for a western audience, it doesn’t really appeal to Muslim and the acting was horrible.


    Edit: how was this made by a Kazakh? Even more astounding

    Love & Pop In-Depth Analysis Part 1: Historical Background of Japan in 1998.

    Love & Pop is a compelling critique of the state of Japan in the late 90’s.

    He's fucking back! Easily one of the top 3 Sono!

    Right when we were beginning to doubt we would ever see him return. When it looked like he was losing his touch; he drops this masterpiece!

    That whole film was just a giant expression of frustration with the studio system and his cult icon status. It expressed a desire to return to filming movies like he used to; independently and without constraints. Wanting to leave a legacy his family can be proud of. It was hype. Compelling af.
