    The strangest and most wonderful costumes AND the strangest and most wonderful fight scenes you'll see this year (possibly, ANY year), Everything Everywhere All at Once also has the most appropriate title of the year. The Swiss Army Man directors have done it again, only more so, and pretty much beaten all the multiversal superhero movies that are about to come out in the process. Michelle Yeoh is great as an overwhelmed (remember that word, it's one of the over-arching metaphors) laundry owner whose destiny may be to stop a powerful force from destroying all possible worlds. And while Yeoh can of course still do action and the movie fits the kung fu category, she can only win by providing an alternative (to save alternate worlds, natch) to nihilism. Help and hindrance are given by the likes of the ubiquitous James Hong, a very funny Jamie Lee Curtis, and Short Round himself, Ke Huy Quan. Everyone is amazing, especially Yeoh, and the film is extremely clever, blazingingly original, gorgeous to look at (and one day, freeze-frame), at times outrageously blue, and surprisingly poignant. Guys, we have an early front-runner for my favorite film of the year. 1 month 1 week ago

    Another salvo from A24, the company whose motto should be "Our films aren't always great, but they'll always be awesome."

    I appreciated the humor and razzle-dazzle, but the crucial failing was that I wasn't emotionally invested. I didn't give a darn about the family relationships supposedly at the film's core, and when they were resolved in the end, I felt nothing at all. And there wasn't any strong philosophical subtext such as you feel in, say, Charlie Kaufman films. Unless you count "Be kind" as some profound message.
