“Everything Everywhere All At Once” is a mental sci-fi adventure that combines humor, fantasy, and heart to create an enormously enjoyable mashup that succeeds where “Of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” failed. Michelle Yeoh makes a successful comeback to the big screen with an unforgettable performance.
Every scene, from the funny to the action to the sad, perfectly conveyed the essence of the entire story. This film has all of the epicness of the Avengers. Still, its strength and scope stem from the enormity of actual LIFE and our odd and gut-wrenching and tremendously precious, beautiful experience of this world, our possibilities, and one another.
Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert wrote and directed Everything Everywhere All at Once, a 2022 American absurdist comedy-drama film. This motion picture reminds us that on the off chance there’s any meaning to life at all, it’s what you bring to it, not what it brings to you.
What Record Has It Broken?
“Everything Everywhere All At Once” is their studio’s highest-grossing picture. This film is 2 hours and 20 minutes long, making it an ideal movie to see with friends who adore science fiction films. It broke the box office record for indie studios A24 with $52,263,484 at the US box office.
Including the global box office, Everything Everywhere All at Once has amassed nearly $57 million worldwide.
Michelle Yeoh and Stephanie Hsu play the protagonist and antagonist, respectively, with Ke Huy Quan, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., James Hong, and Jamie Lee Curtis rounding out the cast. Everyone is an accomplished actress with exceptional acting skills. The leading role was originally promised to Jackie Chan, but it was later given to Yeoh.
What Is The Film About?
The first part of the film demonstrates that everything is meaningless – form, sounds, fragrances, tastes, sensations, perception, your aims, ambitions, and expectations of yourself and others – nothing has a permanent, perpetual, self-sufficient meaning, and this fact is beyond dispute.
But the story does not finish there, as follows:
Above all the meaninglessness, a clear and pure mind must emerge, one that is not bound by any particular meaning.
What is the origin of the word “must”? Because the mind cannot tolerate meaninglessness, it must arise within itself and comprehend meanings as they are. The second half of the film should naturally show how such a clear and pure mind arises and recognizes “love and family” as it is.
While “seeing meaninglessness” is difficult, human beings in modern society might nevertheless reach this state through the ever-changing flow of social ideology trends and personality swings. “Giving rise to a clear and pure mind,” “facing life in a peaceful and non-contentious manner,” on the other hand, is significantly more delicate. It is a must-watch film.
Everything Everywhere at Once does exactly what it says on the tin: it displays EVERYTHING. It is courageously brave and strange (forget Dr. Strange, THIS is a multiverse film, possibly the definitive example – however, what is fantastic, as an illustration of what inventiveness in a restricted space, and indeed cinema as a medium, can do).
