"Everything Everywhere All At Once" is an Oscar movie that is as mind-bending as its title suggests. The film, directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, stars Michelle Yeoh as a retired woman named Ling who suddenly finds herself caught in a cosmic struggle between different universes.

The movie begins with Ling's quiet life in a small town in the US being upended when she starts to experience strange visions that lead her to discover that she has a connection to a parallel universe where she is a warrior tasked with saving humanity from a malevolent force known as the Dark Ones.

As Long tries to understand and navigate this new reality, the film takes the viewer on a wild and exhilarating ride through different dimensions, timelines, and characters. From a school principal who is also a samurai, to a punk rock musician who can bend time and space, to a reclusive inventor working on a device that can bridge worlds, "Everything Everywhere All At Once" is a movie that never stops surprising and challenging the viewer.

What makes this movie stand out is not just its visually stunning and kaleidoscopic imagery, but also its depth and heart. At its core, "Everything Everywhere All At Once" is a story about a woman who has lived a life of regret and missed opportunities, and who now finds a chance for redemption and growth. Michelle Yeoh delivers a powerful and nuanced performance as Ling, carrying the weight of the film's emotional arc with grace and conviction.

Throughout the movie, Ling learns that her choices and actions not only affect her own life but also have ripple effects across the multiverse. It's a theme that resonates strongly in our current times, where we are all interconnected and our actions can have both positive and negative consequences. Through Ling's journey, the film encourages the viewer to reflect on their own choices and the impact they have on the world.

Despite its ambitious scope, "Everything Everywhere All At Once" never loses its sense of humour and playfulness. The film is full of witty one-liners, pop culture references, and genre-bending twists that keep the viewer on their toes. At times, the movie can be overwhelming and confusing, but it's all part of the experience of being transported to a universe where anything is possible.

In conclusion, "Everything Everywhere All At Once" is a tour de force of filmmaking that deserves to be seen on the big screen. It's a movie that celebrates the power of imagination and the human spirit, it challenges us to rethink our place in the universe. With its masterful blend of sci-fi, comedy, and drama, it's a film that truly lives up to its title.
