Subj: Everything Everywhere All at Once: the best movie of the year

I highly recommend this comedy. It's multiversal conflict as both a literal and metaphorical reflection of a strained mother-daughter relationship. This movie is something like if Charlie Kaufman and Stephen Chow wrote THE MATRIX except Neo is a middle-aged Chinese woman who runs a laundromat. After the initial setup, the movie flies into an insanely frenetic pace that is wildly creative and wittily hilarious as the characters access other versions of themselves across the multiverse by performing highly improbable acts like eating lip balm or something best left unsaid involving trophies. Highlights include a universe where learning kung fu turns our protagonist into a celebrity who gets her own Wong Kar-Wai moment, an ongoing RATATOUILLE joke, and a scene I’ll just called “rocks.”

Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Jamie Lee Curtis, and most surprisingly Ke Huy Quan (Short Round from TEMPLE OF DOOM and Data from THE GOONIES!?!) are all amazing here.
