    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

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

    I loveeeee the infinitely irrational absurdity of possible realities in this movie. Doesn’t get weighed down by overly complicated science/tech, very accessible. Honestly more comedy than sci-fi here- which is tone appropriate and encourages a more lighthearted reading. The rock scene= absolutely perfect, an iconic moment for cinema. Very ambitious. Crazy and fun shifting settings, costumes, makeup.

    4 to 4.5 googly eyes out of 5 for me— all things considered… I mean this is a fantastic movie but also can’t help feeling it is a taddy tad overhyped.

    Inland Empire is like Inception for grown ups. 

    Moral of the story: don’t get into method acting, kids!

    ★★½

    An exquisitely captured sequence of footage, this film is, at the least, a worthwhile archival documentation of pre-smartphone, late twentieth century banality. Sans Soleil exists as a long, fractured, existential narration to international geographies. The first of the permeating musings I found interesting was something along the lines of: “After traveling the world many times, banalities are the only things left that interest him.”

    Unfortunately, these “banalities” are mostly imposed on Japanese culture through a fetishized lens. I couldn’t shake…

    ★★★★

    An incredibly hedonistic film, this savage group behavioral experiment of psychological horror is an insight into the terrors of mental insanity.

    Not pleasurable to watch, although the dancing segments are beautiful.

    The “interview prologue” at the beginning felt too cookie cut out for the genre and did very little to establish significant connection to the characters.

    That being said, this film takes a lot of risks and definitely achieves a wild sense of unease.
