It is the most nominated film of the year for Oscar. The entire cast (Michelle Yeoh, Ke Hui Quan, Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu) received at least 11 nominations, some in the main categories (Film, Direction, Original Screenplay) and some in technical (Editing, Costumes, Music and Original Song). A genuine wonder for its unusualness (although it was a favorite in the pool), and backed by a brilliant business career.
Released in Spain in June after a tremendous run at the world’s most prestigious independent film festivals, ‘everything together everywhere‘ (which, by the way, you can watch on Movistar Plus+) has managed to raise just over a hundred million dollars at the worldwide box office, starting with a budget of 25: the highest grossing of an indie production company addicted to success Film to do, A24. Quite an achievement for a film that has captivated audiences across the planet with its peculiar sense of humor, complex approach to the multiverse, and the strange magnetism of its cast.
Yes, the multiverse, because although he does it in a fantasy key, ‘everything at once everywhere’ shares with the Marvel movies his recent obsession with the narrative possibilities of parallel universes. But where productions like ‘Loki’, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ or ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ use split realities to inject thrills and wink at fans, Dan Quan and Daniel This film by Scheinert (better known as ‘The Denial’) uses it to venture into a funny existential premise.
In fact, the mention of ‘Loki’ is not gratuitous, because if this film has anything to do with Marvel’s proposal, it is in the final episode of the Disney + series starring Tom Hiddleston, when he used Infinite as an excuse to consider. used possibilities. nature of the universe. ‘Everything at Once Everywhere’ does that too, but with some generational drama and a Chinese laundry as a backdrop.
everything, everything and everything
In the film we meet Evelyn Wang (stunning, as always, Michelle Yeoh), a mature Chinese immigrant who works at a laundromat she owns and is completely suffocated by her job, and Weimond (Ke Hui del templo maldito from the failed marriage of Quan, the unforgettable Tarpon), in an interpretation that aroused warm praise). As he prepares for an inevitable bureaucratic conflict (led by Jamie Lee Curtis), A rift in the multiverse leads him on an adventure to contain the stability of the universe It will take you to unexpected places.
Evelyn, in her leaps through the multiverse, will gain amazing abilities that her various incarnations will give her, as well as those around her, primarily her husband and daughter. And it’s all narrated with a vibrant staging and an absolutely innovative use of editing that keeps the audience glued to the seat (without a doubt, one of the most deserving Oscars it will almost certainly win).
The feeling that absolutely anything is possible with film is not long in coming (in fact, it is true, and the most memorable moments remain in the memory). what i just saw: sausage fingers, philosopher’s stones, crazy eyes), and this is what sustains an adventure, not because it is delirious and sarcastic, it has little depth. Most classic science fiction audience most open Philip K. can’t stop thinking about dickWhat can be the conversion of ‘ubique’ in the everyday key.
Perhaps the only thing that plays against this brilliant nonsense is its status as a unique and inimitable proposition. Michelle Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis have had additional gems in their careers, and this one is probably far from the last, but we know how these bursts of creativity and ingenuity work: will Daniels be able to live it up in his next film? (indeed, his previous ‘Swiss Army Man’ is far less so)? Or are we facing a glorious flowering of the day? For now, let’s enjoy the well-deserved recognition it’s earning.
