Winner of 7 Oscars, this is a remarkable genre-breaking film. While I wanted to love this movie, I did not. The film editing, cinematography, directing, and acting, as examples, are impressive. It was nominated for 11 Oscars including the spectacularly talented Michelle Yeoh as Evelyn. However, for me it was a bit tedious. If I were 21, I believe I would have loved it much more. In short, Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) leads a disappointing life as an immigrant living in California who with her husband and daughter run a laundromat. They are in trouble with the IRS (Jamie Lee Curtis is their examiner) and Evelyn's father is a bit of a burden. Suddenly, a man looking like her husband tells her she is the savior of all the "verses" (short for all the universes). Evelyn has a similar Evelyn in every "verse" all of whom seem to be successful... unlike Evelyn. She is meant to save all the "verses" from a version of Evelyn's daughter, Joy. The mayhem builds throughout the movie with some parts showing only 2-3 seconds per "verse". Evelyn decides to take her own path but the length of repetition of this film takes stamina.
I haven't seen it yet, and not sure I want to. I only know 1 person who liked it -- and that's a 20 something year old guy, who is also a gamer. I'm surprised it won so many of the awards....but then again....
I am relieved that I am not the only one who did not like this movie. My husband and I watched it after the Golden Globes and stopped watching about half way in, which we Never do. Just too tedious for us!
Well, I have several other friends who didn’t care for the movie…some stopped watching it before it was over. I was even turned off by the previews! So guess I’ll try it because of all the nominations but I’m prepared to agree with you!
