The movie is high. Review of the movie “Everything at once”

The multiverse theory is the hypothesis of parallel worlds that contains all possible facts. According to his quantum version, each decision, even the smallest, determines the emergence of another branch of the present, and therefore the mentioned worlds are infinitely many and constantly multiply.

With superhero productions becoming increasingly popular lately, the multiverse can be associated primarily with comics heroes, but Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert appear in their latest movie. Everything everywhere at onceYou don’t need a mantle to recognize a different version of yourself from the real world next door.

Extraordinary ordinary woman

Evelyn Wang is a middle-aged woman, a non-prosperous laundry owner, a wife and a mother. Overwhelmed by a large number of things on her mind, the heroine does not have time to take care of relationships with her loved ones or herself, and leads a life characterized by routine, monotony and unfulfilled dreams.

The situation changes when Evelyn gets a pass into the multiverse, allowing her to explore all versions of herself in parallel realities – from a movie star, to a singer, to a woman who turns an advertising banner on the street. However, it turns out that the key to other worlds was given to the protagonist not by chance.

Evelyn will have to face danger, face lost versions of herself as she can be, come to terms with the demons that torment her, and above all – appreciate and save her family.

absolutely everything

Title Everything everywhere at once It describes the reviewed production well. Because in this film everything happens in reality, everywhere and at the same time. Although the basis of the plot is a typical story about the grayness of everyday life and responsibilities, problems with relationships with loved ones, facing problems, seeing what is really important and accepting your weaknesses, the surroundings are certainly not typical.

The multiplicity of concepts used by screenwriters and directors is overwhelming in places, as if every idea born in their heads was instantly put on paper. On the one hand, this presents to Everything everywhere at once A little chaotic, but on the other hand – the film becomes incredibly dynamic, not giving the viewer even a moment to rest. The slowing pace of scenes seems to quickly turn into a quick race to the next scenes that are full of action, often containing great fight choreography.

The painting by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert is full of irony, abstraction and absurdity, and the humor presented in it comes close to a certain extent, near which some “sensitive” viewers may feel dissatisfied. Everything everywhere at once Because he often aims for very simple jokes, yet he does so efficiently enough to have fun (although I counted four people who left the movie room during the show), being open to variations and not mad at trivial things.

You can’t call a movie high-end entertainment, but that’s what makes it an advantage and what makes it Everything everywhere at once It’s become a breath of fresh air in the sci-fi comedy genre — something that’s been missing in movie theaters in recent years.

Definitely everywhere

Guidance Everything everywhere at once It’s a piece of solid cinematography. The above figure, chosen by the creators, allows you to create frames as crazy as the plot itself. The images change in the blink of an eye, and the myriad of locations, different versions of characters and individual colors make it easy to confuse, but simply quite entertaining. Even when we miss whatever version of Evelyn we look at, which is the original from the beginning of the movie, it doesn’t seem to matter at all.

And, by the way, the main character deserves to be admired by Michelle Yeoh, who plays her very cool. The actress is great at portraying different versions of Evelyn (and there are some) thanks to her performance Everything everywhere at once takes blush. Yeoh Ke Huy Quan’s accompaniment, as her husband, Waymond Wang, is a great addition, giving her the entire scene to show her full potential and playing in a way that complements her on-screen partner’s acting skills. However, he is in himself a believable character who evokes emotions in the viewer, standing in contrast to the protagonist, and yet he is undisturbed and very memorable.

Certainly all at once

Everything everywhere at once Lively, colorful, fantastic, abstract, absurd, and totally unique. His mesmerizing form is captivating from start to finish, and his weirdness and originality are the traits that distinguish him from the audience of the same somewhat unspeakable comedy. The output was at the highest level, and the film reveals new layers and layers of potential that are almost fully used with every minute.

The creators of this production use the least obvious and least safe options, flaunt their unlimited creativity, and come up with it perfectly. While some “stupid things” will make us nod in disapproval, we will still smile.

Everything everywhere at once You definitely have to watch it, as it aspires to be one of the best paintings of its kind in recent years, which puts the bar very high in this category.
