EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE
Movie review by David Blackwell

139 minutes
STUDIO: A24/ AGBO/ Ley Line Entertainment/ IAC Films/ Year of the Rat
Theatrical RELEASE DATE: 3-25-2022 (limited)/ 4-8-2022 (wide release)
EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE is a very meta and philosophical sci-fi movie about the paths we could have taken and the paths in life we are on. Sometimes it is too meta for its own good while providing a very unique arthouse sci-fi film that will have a cult following for years to come. It is very bonkers at time and sometimes some scenes like a guy wanting to land his ass on a phallic looking object to gain access to abilities from another version of himself from another universe is not for the squeamish (as six people walked out of the theater during that scene). The movie has some well staged action sequences and great visual effects.

Michelle Yeoh is Evelyn Wang, who owns a Laundromat with her husband Waymond, is a person who always attempted many things with actually finishing them. She is gathering receipts for an IRS audit of the business, but this day will be unlike anything she has ever been through. An alternate version of Waymond takes over her husband's body from time to time to warn her of Jobu Tupaki and Jobu's danger to the multiverse. He also tells Evelyn that she might be the only one who can stop Jobu Tupaki and that she has to access skills from her alternate selves from the paths she didn't take. She experiences the lives she could have taken whether it is being a Kung Fu action star, chef, or singer while learning about the black hole bagel of doom. Does her life have meaning? Is life worth living or does it not matter at all? What is this about her chef co-worker whose supreme chef skills are controlled by a raccoon?

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE is an absurd sci-fi comedy that has a great cast and fantastic action, but it might not connect with everyone. Michelle Yeoh shines in the lead of this movie as she navigates several different versions of her character while navigating the meaning of life and the fate of the mulltiverse. The movie isn’t for everyone as it can get out there too far for some viewers. I do feel it gets a little too meta at times. This movie will be loved by some while others may think it is a mess and even a waste of their two hours. For lovers of cinema and arthouse.
