Everything Everywhere All At Once Delivers On Every Level
This movie is an acid trip, a fever dream in a multiverse that you were never expecting. Evelyn
Wang (Michelle Yeoh) is a Chinese immigrant who moved to the United States with her husband
Waymond Wang (Ke Huy Quan. Yes he played Short Round and was in the Goonies) This film
with a small central cast is jam-packed with well-choreographed action, clever lines, absolute

Slate) and Evelyn’s Father Gong Gong (James Hong).
I thoroughly enjoyed watching the story form as the pace becomes a frantic race to save
humanity. It is a definite joy ride through Evelyn’s mind. Go see this in the theaters is very worth
