Written and Directed by Daniel Kwan, Daniel Scheinert (collectively known as Daniels)

Everything Everywhere All At Once’ has a simple storyline.

An Asian American woman named Evelyn Wang runs a successful Laundromat with her husband Waymond Wang which is being audited by the IRS. The relationship with both her daughter and her husband are faltering. 

That's when she is contacted by the Waymond from the Alphaverse, who wants her to fight against Jobu Tapaki — an elusive Alphaverse villain who wants to destroy everything, everywhere, all the universes. What happens next is a blend of fun, spooky, heartful, and one hell of an enjoyable adventure ride.

Michelle Yeoh and Stephanie Hsu shine in their roles as the mother-daughter pair at odds. But, it’s Ke Huy Quan's portrayal of multiple Waymonds is just amazing and especially towards the conclusion, his role hits you very hard.

In addition to the theme of the American dream, the movie also focuses on the philosophical discussion between existentialism and nihilism. 

A team of 9 members which includes the two directors of the film, approached the film's VFX in a minimalist way to extract the maximum creative output on the screen. 

And It is no exaggeration to say that, this small-budget film outdid Marvel's Doctor strange multiverse of madness, in better handling of concepts like multiverse and parallel universes visually.

On a whole, Everything Everywhere all at once the movie has so many things to say much similar to its title, and some may feel its journey is a bit odd in the middle but the film makes it all worthwhile in the end, by having at its heart at the right place.
