3 Sentence Review: Movie — Everything Everywhere All at Once

As promised, here are three sentences that summarize my thoughts on the movie Everything Everywhere All at Once.

  1. This movie is really weird.
  2. I’m glad I watched it, and I know a lot of people LOVE it, but I can only recommend it to you if you are okay with long, sad, silly, mundane, bizarre, juvenile humor, ass-kicking action, multiverse theories, and emotional trauma–consider yourself warned.
  3. Although the sci-fi themed ending was satisfying enough, I did not think that characteristically it ended well, and even though the ‘message’ seems to be that “nothing matters”, I found the absurdist moral of the story to be quite the opposite.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
