Last year, a movie that swept the red carpet event at the Oscars with 7 altogether wins was Everything Everywhere All at Once. The film, written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, delved deep into the genre of absurdist comedy. And now, the award-winning cinema is all set to gain a foothold in Netflix’s streaming list of 2024 from February 23rd onwards.

Previously, the makers even handed out the courtesy to the Internet for bringing them in together. Having garnered a box office traffic of over $143 million in sales, the flick took release in the summer of 2022 on March 11th in South by Southwest. On March 25th, it hit the theatrical frenzy with its unveiling in the United States. As it is now staking a claim on the streaming mogul’s platform, here is why it could amass a staggering figure in Netflix’s already-numbered viewership. 

Confluence of genres

When the award-winning spectacle of Everything Everywhere All at Once rolled out in the theatres, one of its key takeaways was its effort to bend cinematic genres. The makers very slyly shouldered the responsibility for incorporating estranged elements of filmography’s components to bring to the plate a sensational crossover between comedy-drama and science fiction.

The cinema also brought a mix of fantasy values through the combination of martial arts films and animation. Everything Everywhere All At Once stepped its foot to address the core misgivings of intergenerational trauma and how it can be overcome through healing relationships. Asserting the nod of science fiction to exaggerate the nitpicks of domestic drama, the film further brought in a fresh preview of the modern-day decorums of family entanglements.

The present-day portrayal of kinship

Everything Everywhere All at Once did the unthinkable in its projection of reimagining familial bonds in the contemporary world. Rooted in the deliriums of Evelyn’s emotional rollercoaster with the advent of Chinese New Year, the movie displays a ballad of mother-daughter love. Caught up in the tussle of her own emotions, her daughter’s sexual inclination, and her husband’s conservatism, Evelyn journeys on a time-lapse glitch to confront her parallel lives.

In the movie, the intricacies are essential for navigating through the conflicts. Thus, in an attempt to do so, Evelyn travels the metaverse of unpredictability to come to terms with the tough jump on the philosophy of life. As the split-second transformations portray the simultaneous personalities of Evelyn from a Chinese Opera Singer to a trained Kung-fu fighter, she resorts back to her comfort zone of family and relationships.

This epic tale of eye-opening realizations also proved its upper hand with its touch of unconventionality in its storytelling.

Nontraditional narrative

One of the core understandings by the makers of Everything Everywhere All at Once was their original way of storytelling. Banking on the enigma of shared philosophy and unique perspective, the creators ensured carving a niche out of the clustered values of today to shed light on what is important and what is not. The movie relives the fast-paced continuum of the present-day world to convey the crucial space that kinship holds.

Teeming with the nuances of advancing digital frenzy and twisted equations of personas, it bows down deep into the exploration of nihilism and how it has become an essential component of the generation. Therefore, as Evelyn tries to find a way without submitting to generational nihilism, the film engages unconventionally to leverage action sequences to cut loose the complete transformation into a sinister coping mechanism.

Furthermore, it also highlights the Eastern way of life with credible importance.

True to the Eastern roots

Everything Everywhere All at Once exhibits the core philosophies of the Eastern borders of the globe. The movie gives significant space to the narrative of native immigrants while bringing forth a cast rooted in the Asian-American lineage. The cast features Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., and James Hong. It finds essentiality in its powerful portrayal of the belief of the idea that penetrates the concept of love beyond resistance.

Through Evelyn’s attempt to prevent destruction with her frequent jumps through the verses, the epiphanies of existentialism, absurdism, and humanism bring an old ideal of love into modern garb. The movie also expertise in subtly projecting the immigrant Asian’s experience through dislocations and personality transitions suffered by hyphenated citizens. Therefore, it is not only a work of mastering the confluence of genres but also highlighting the real-age problems of the world.
