    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    The epitome of impossible to categorise.

    It's a deftly-handled family drama about the trials of immigrants in the US; a satire on the US tax system; a drama about broken relationships and coming to terms with gay family; it's a mind-bending science-fiction adventure; an incredible comeback for Shortround/Data Key Huy Quan; a showcase powerhouse performance from Michelle Yeoh; an equally spellbinding performance by Stephanie Hsu; a comedy; a tragedy; a career-high for Jamie Lee Curtis; and it is all things…

    High mid-tier Marvel. Very Sam Raimi. Basically Evil Dead 4.

    This is a very Taika Waititi film. Anyone expect Ragnarok might be disappointed. Anyone expecting the spiritual continuation of Hunt for the Wilderpeople will be in their element.

    Yesterday

    ★★★

    If you're writing a love letter to The Beatles, you need more than love. But Yesterday's conceit is bizarre. I'm not convinced it really works, but it's delightfully told, with winsome actors and, inevitably, a superb soundtrack. It won't change the world: life goes on.
