Just as back in 1999, The Matrix was everything Star Wars fans wished The Phantom Menace
might have been, the latest Michelle Yeoh outing is everything Neo fans wished The Matrix
Resurrections had been.
The martial arts sci-fi actioner Everything Everywhere All At Once lives up to its absurd title,
proving to be just about the most head-spinning, spine-snapping, ribtickling movie you’re going
to see all year. Or any other year, for that matter.
This is Charlie Kaufman meets Charlie Chan, Kung Fu Hustle via David Lynch, and it might
just blow your mind. If you’re able to keep up.
In a role originally slotted for Jackie Chan, the great Michelle Yeoh must be Oscar-bound for
her portrayal of sad sack laundromat owner Evelyn, too busy worrying about finally getting her
tax returns to their dreaded IRS auditor (a comically frumpy Jamie Lee Curtis) to notice that
her wimpy husband has been trying to serve her divorce papers all morning. Throw in an
angry teenage daughter who’s trying to introduce her girlfriend to her grumpy, old-fashioned
grandfather, and clearly, Evelyn could do with an escape plan.
