It’s been nominated for 11 Oscars, was the first A24 movie to gross over $100 million, even briefly topped Letterboxd’s list of the greatest movies of all time – and now it’s available as a streaming subscription: “Everything Everywhere All At Once”.
Delivering a critic or audience favorite is always a big challenge for filmmakers. Both in one? This is the absolute highest discipline – which in 2022 produced two new kings: Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (“Swiss Army Man”). With “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” the directing duo delighted the specialist press and audience alike, delivering what many consider to be the best multiverse adventure of all time (which is quite remarkable considering the popular Marvel competition) and bringing indie forge A24 (“Hereditary, “X”) the first $100 million hit at the box office.
The film came in at number 1 in our list of the best films of 2022 and even briefly topped the all-time ranking of the 250 greatest films in cinema history on the film rating platform Letterboxd. It is now ‘only’ enough for 17th place, which still makes it by far the best film of recent years. But does the sci-fi family adventure live up to the hype? From now on you can convince yourself of this more easily than ever before: Because “Everything Everywhere All At Once” is now available on Sky or as a streaming subscription WOW accessible:

“Everything Everywhere All At Once” is as creative as it is popular, making it one of THE talking points for movie fans in recent years. Risking a look is worth it to finally be able to say something for yourself. But that’s not the only reason why we can only give an unconditional recommendation: you can expect nothing less than a piece of cinema like you’ve never seen before – taking you into not just one, but many fascinating worlds.
“Everything Everywhere All At Once”: That’s How Multiversum Works!
At the center of the story is the laundromat owner Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh), who has problems with the tax authorities. Struggling with the stress of her life, the Chinese immigrant struggles to find the energy to keep her lesbian daughter’s (Stephanie Hsu) love life a secret from her conservative father (James Hong). She doesn’t even notice that her husband (Ke Huy Quan) tries to show her the divorce papers at every opportunity.
Instead of facing the challenges of her daily life, Evelyn prefers to think about what her life would have been like if she had made other, supposedly better decisions here and there – until one day she actually finds herself in parallel universes where she is rich. and successful…
The 2023 Oscar nominations: A German (!) Netflix epic makes history – and is only surpassed by another film
“Everything Everywhere All At Once” is an ode to life in all its facets – beautiful and painful, sometimes deeply philosophical and sometimes completely banal, and as varied as it is unpredictable. But at the heart of this totally crazy and spectacular potpourri of ideas, in which one curiosity chases another and anal plug duels, Wiener sausage fingers and stones (!), which lead to perhaps one of the most moving conversations of the last cinema year, only the small are the culmination of an unbridled wealth of ideas unleashed, “Everything Everywhere All At Once” is a family drama in which every viewer is likely to find some point of contact with their own life.
And that’s exactly why the movie grew into such a phenomenon: “Everything Everywhere All At Once” thrives on a unique blend of the new and the familiar. It’s hard to count the “I’ve never seen anything like it!” moments, they are so numerous. At the same time, all this madness serves as an emotional rollercoaster of feelings that the film affects for practically everyone who has ever cut themselves off from their parents, who have never been able to understand their children – and who have ever wondered what life is like for them in had in store if he had taken a different route here and there.
In the CELEBTAP review, author Björn Becher gave the “Multiverse that trumps even Marvel” an excellent 4.5 stars. The author of this article would even go one step further: for him, the wild ride is not only worth it whether you are an action, sci-fi, comedy, drama or martial arts fan, but also one of the the few films in which you discover new exciting details the more you look at it – and therefore an exceptional film that can really only receive the highest rating. Incidentally, our former editor Benjamin Hecht has a similar opinion:
