    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★½

    I cried so much through this my head is a little loopy lol. What I think Daniels have achieved here is absolutely incredible. Putting this idea of generational trauma and mixing it with the multiverse concept was such a genius idea. I am so in awe of how Michelle Yeoh and the rest of the cast are able to be our beacon of emotional clarity through the chaos of the different universes. Truly such a special, once in a lifetime movie. …

    ★★★

    Quite the outlier in Naruse's filmography. There's a parallel flashback narrative structure in this one that I think slightly works against his intention of compounding pathos. The thing that I love about Naruse's films is how the melodramatic turns keep on adding up, till the weight of pain and suffering becomes almost unbearable to our protagonists in the films' final moments. The jumping backward and forwards in time relies on the backstory to add pathos, which makes it less impactful…

    I doubt that there will be another animated film that will top Promare this year. Plays like a killer anime episode with top tier action sequences. It’s commentary on the current US political climate and queer subtext definitely also elevate this film for me. Recommend recommend recommend!!!
