Talk about a multiverse of madness. This week, we’re diving into A24’s surreal and cerebral Everything Everywhere All at Once from the Daniels, directors of Swiss Army Man. Starring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu, and Jamie Lee Curtis, this sprawling and manic action fantasy is definitely one we won’t forget anytime soon. We also review the nostalgic Apollo 10½: A Space Age Childhood, the newest film from Richard Linklater—animated in the same style as his films Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly—now available to stream on Netflix.
