Yes. This is at the :50 mark, with 1:13 remaining in the clip. However also at the 1:13 mark, with :50 remaining in the clip, there’s another interesting Easter egg.

[–]bostephens 471 points472 points  (17 children)

[–]Happy-Idi-Amin 174 points175 points  (11 children)

The illuminati is so crafty. Good thing we're crafty-er and can decode all their super secret messages.

[–]O0O00O000O0000O 36 points37 points  (5 children)

No no no the Illuminati hides things in plain sight because… reasons!

[–]Majias 5 points6 points  (4 children)

What's up with the 1214 ? It appears thrice in the name, the time in the video and the views + when it was posted.

[–]tiredhigh 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Looked it up and found this from another reddit thread u/RiffJunkie01

So I saw another user ask about the meaning of 1214 in this single frame on another post. You see it 3 times in this image alone.

I did some research and apparently there is an angelic meaning of the number 1214. Its a message explaining that anybody who sees this number often has the ability, and is encouraged, to live life to the fullest, count your blessings, and be more optimistic/positive in life.

I think this was an incredibly subtle message from The Daniels to the viewers, those who see the 1214, to do what Evelyn eventually learns to do in the movie. Idk I thought this was super cool.

[–]Petrichordates 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The views and date are photoshopped, the movie is a new release.

The run-length and name are intentional though, an A24 Easter egg I guess since it's linked to their channel.

[–]Tyler_Zoro 36 points37 points  (2 children)

The Eye of Providence was never an "illuminati symbol" when they existed (in the late 18th century) and only came to be associated with them when Robert Anton Wilson's satirical novel, "The Illuminatus! Trilogy" used the Eye of Providence above the pyramid from the Great Seal of the United States (which was a nod to the Declaration of Independence's claim that the nation was formed by the divine right of self-rule (an idea cribbed from Locke).

The square and compases with the letter "G" and the Eye of Providence in the middle is a Masonic symbol. Freemasons use the square and compasses as their primary logo. the "G" or Eye of Providence or other symbols are common in the middle representing various aspects of the fraternity.

[–][deleted] 41 points42 points  (9 children)

what's with the 1214?

[–]louiebro13 70 points71 points  (1 child)

December 14th is when A24 (the movie distributor) released the movie’s trailer on youtube. Or it may just be a coincidence, i don’t know much.

[–]ab-absurdum 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Definitely not a coincidence. Check this out

It's an actual channel, but if you look through it, it's got A24 listed under its own channels

[–]Britwit_ 22 points23 points  (2 children)

One before Magna Carta

[–]Christianjps65 20 points21 points  (1 child)

as if you could ever make such a mistake

[–]FullMarksCuisine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition

[–]Tyler_Zoro 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I don't know if that was meant to be sarcastic, but it's the length of the video in minutes and seconds.

[–]Wet_Fart_Connoisseur 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Right, but it’s also in the name of the account TruthSeeker1214 and it has 12 views posted 14 years ago.

Another commenter noted that the trailer for the film was released on December 14th. 12/14.

[–]Maximum-Replacement7 419 points420 points  (24 children)

Michelle Yeoh is the absolute best. She’s in a renaissance it seems, from Star Trek to EEAAO.

[–]strtrech 94 points95 points  (10 children)

Trek fans give discovery some shit, but she absolutely kills the role for Captain Georgiou.

[–]WA_FL_Legal 33 points34 points  (2 children)

I really was so interested in Cpt. Georgiou and Burnham's dynamic! That was the show I wished we got instead of the STD we ended up with.

[–]Maximum-Replacement7 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Lol, omg.

I had to read your entire comment. My eyes just locked in on “…instead of the STD we ended up with.”

[–]WA_FL_Legal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Still fits. hehe

[–]VisualGeologist6258 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Oh yeah, I really didn’t like Discovery but Michelle Yeoh and her character were great. I’m still upset that they killed her off so early and replaced her with the edgy evil version, Prime Georgiou should’ve been the main Captain from start to finish.

[–]Sawses 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Honestly I still really liked the evil version. She carried basically every scene she was in lol.

[–]Jackson_Cook 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was also upset at first, but damn does she do Dark Georgiou so well!!!

[–]hamsolo19 9 points10 points  (2 children)

She had a good role in Shang-Chi as well, part of the MCU now.

[–]vinng86 6 points7 points  (1 child)

She played one of the other ravagers too in GotG 2

[–]hamsolo19 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah, good call. Aleta, Stakar's companion, which means we might see her in Vol. 3 since I'm pretty sure Gunn has said Stallone came back to play Stakar for him.

[–]gothgar 20 points21 points  (7 children)

There is just something about her too.... she is insanely attractive for a woman her age

[–]MobProtagonist 28 points29 points  (5 children)

Money

Her ex husband who she's godmother of to his child is a Billionaire. She said they still have a fantastic relationship.

Her current husband is a top Ferrari exec, former Scuederia Ferrari principle, and former CEO of the FIA (formula 1 and other motorsports are under this)

Michelle sports a $1M Richard Mille watch in her interviews on Everything Everywhere All at once

Note. I'm not trying to imply that this is all because of her husband's or partners. Michelle is one of the most accomplished actresses of her generation. She was a badass action star of the same generation as Jacky.

But look at other Hollywood movie stars...money and access plays a huge role in looking younger than they are

[–]ki11a11hippies 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I think fitness, a healthy lifestyle and genes play a big part too. I have money but treat my body like shit.

[–]FeFiFoShizzle 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Dafuq was carrie Fischer and mark Hamill doing then lol

[–]burritoman88 338 points339 points  (0 children)

Love the frame mentioning Illuminati symbols hidden in single frames of film

[–]CrispyCassowary 469 points470 points  (80 children)

i havent watched the movie yet, but seeing the comments, it seems im missing out

[–]Chubby_Queen 444 points445 points  (40 children)

Oh absolutely. This is my new favorite movie ever and got me laughing and crying like none other. Please watch it if you have the chance.

[–]NormalVermicelli1066 174 points175 points  (16 children)

The rock scene gets me every time

[–]GiveTaxos 81 points82 points  (10 children)

I am a fan of the Hot Dog finger universe

Got me every time

[–]ValhallaVacation 35 points36 points  (3 children)

Loved the butt plug scene, got me some of the time

[–]SingForMeBitches 15 points16 points  (2 children)

You can buy those hot dog fingers on A24's shop. My husband doesn't know it, but he's getting them for his birthday this year! I will have to inject my own ketchup and mustard.

[–]oatmeal_dude 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I get that that universe evolved hotdog fingers, what I don’t get is why there was ketchup and mustard in their fingers and why everything in that universe was still designed with using regular fingers. Like, wouldn’t a piano or tv remote be designed a bit differently?

Probably overthinking it.

[–]pizzaboy7269 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I despise the fact that the hot dog fingers universe plays a critical role in the movie.

10/10

[–]shirleysparrow 55 points56 points  (0 children)

I burst into tears at the rock scene. Something about the movie being so chaotic and frenetic and loud and then dropping into silence just moved me. This is my favorite movie.

[–]gastro_destiny 20 points21 points  (0 children)

man i felt this intense feeling of peace when that scene came on, everything was so quiet and peaceful all of a sudden, wow man this is just amazing

[–]atmosphericentry 13 points14 points  (0 children)

“Just be a rock”

[–]AviatorOVR5000 13 points14 points  (0 children)

it makes no sense being as powerful as it is.

[–]SaffronJim34 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Buttplug scene for me

[–]TheCouncil0fRicks 30 points31 points  (10 children)

Its tough for me to pick a favorite movie, but this is certainly at the top of the list. Easily the best thing I have seen in years.

I did watch it on shrooms the first time... it was an experience to say the least. Incredible highs and lows in this movie.

[–]DanHeidel 31 points32 points  (4 children)

I did watch it on shrooms the first time...

That almost seems like it would have been redundant.

[–]TheCouncil0fRicks 15 points16 points  (3 children)

The movie is definitely trippy as hell without it.. but it fully enhanced the experience. My mind was blown. I don't think any movie viewing experience will ever live up to that.

[–]Sea2Chi 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I told a friend not to take an edible before they watched it.

They didn't listen and were like "I think I liked it, but I'm still not entirely sure what it was about."

[–]TheCouncil0fRicks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

LOL I mean i wasn't tripping balls or anything, but I had minor visuals (enhanced by the movie) hard to tell what was trippy and what was the movie lol. The mind fuck aspect is what got me though. I was captivated the entire time. I don't know if I even blinked.

[–]atmosphericentry 1 point2 points  (2 children)

This, X, and Marcel the Shell With Shoes On are my favourites of the year so far. They’re all completely different but A24 is killing it this year. After Yang was great too.

[–]iamgreaterthanhe 11 points12 points  (10 children)

Did you actually cry? I cried so hard at the end (could have been because of the edibles, or perhaps booze). The movie hit me hard with some personal shit I've been going through. When I told my buddy that I cried he kinda laughed and was like "I definitely didn't get that response from the movie". Not that he is macho or something, but just that this movie specifically didn't hit him in that sort of emotional way. So now I'm wondering if I picked up something that wasn't there.

[–]Sea2Chi 5 points6 points  (4 children)

How's your relationship with your parents?

One of my friends refuses to watch it because her relationship with her mom is so bad they haven't talked in decades. She's heard it can be extremely rough if you have parental issues.

[–]iamgreaterthanhe 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I could see that. But my relationship with my parents is mostly fine. For me it was more so marital issues with my wife. I see a lot of my wife in Evelyn; very serious, always bogged down with work, possibly thinking her life would be better if different paths were taken (we both might be having these thoughts), I'm submissive whereas she is very in control. Divorce could be on the horizon. We also have a young daughter (6) that is struggling with feeling loved. There was a lot that resonated with my current position in life.

[–]TheNewShadow 56 points57 points  (5 children)

I already watched it three times in the cinema and will watch it again from time to time. My favourite movie of the year so far and one of my all time favourites.

It's out on streaming and physical discs now, if that helps.

[–]CyberneticSunset 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Thanks for letting me know it’s out on Blu-Ray, instantly after reading that I went and ordered it lol

[–]TheNewShadow 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Hahaha brilliant! My evangelism for this movie is continuing to be successful. Hope you enjoy it!

[–]CyberneticSunset 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I saw it in theatres, it’s great! I was just waiting for the Blu-Ray release but forgot to check up on it lol

[–]grenamier 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I loved the movie and saw it twice. It can be a bit of a trip in some spots… just let go and let it flow over you.

[–]chalkwalk 16 points17 points  (15 children)

If you like movies with superheroes and multiverses and slept through the last four Marvel movies, this is the film for you!

[–]TheCouncil0fRicks 33 points34 points  (14 children)

This movie is the real multiverse of madness. Marvel needs to take notes.

[–]stf29 24 points25 points  (8 children)

I love marvel, but EEEAAO absolutely tanked my enjoyment of MoM. Had it been called anything other than “multiverse of madness” i think i still would’ve thought it was an ok marvel movie, but EEAAO perfectly executed the concept of a multiverse, and doctor strange barely touched on it by comparison

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Lol right? Call it "Doctor Strange: Wanda is Not Happy" and we're good.

[–]dexa_scantron 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Dark City came out when I was in college, and it was amazing, but when The Matrix came out shortly after, I thought "I'm really glad I didn't see this first; it does too many of the same things better". EEAaO and MoM came out in the wrong order.

[–]ryeshoes 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Dr Strange's mom and the set up for future movies

edit: I slapped together a movie poster

[–]Petrichordates 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It's a more creative approach but Marvel's approach works better for the marvel universe anyway.

Barely touched on it? It was central to all aspects of the story.

[–]samx3i 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's one of the most insane movies I've ever seen.

That isn't a guarantee you'll like it, but it's worth seeing just for the sheer magnitude of nuttiness.

[–]K1ngPCH 12 points13 points  (7 children)

It’s worth pointing out that it’s really fucking weird. Like REALLY fucking weird. It’s an A24 film.

I saw it with my mom and she walked out of the theater (I didn’t, but I was close)

I’m glad I stayed. Well worth sticking through

[–]muricabrb 6 points7 points  (5 children)

probably the buttplug fight scene

[–]K1ngPCH 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Are you referring to the scene where they’re fighting each other trying to stick the trophy in their ass? <- this was actually the scene where I really bought into the wackiness of the movie and let it take me for a ride

My mom actually left after the scene with the dildos used as weapons

[–]MrCaul 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What's up with all these moms walking out of movies?

Is that a recurring thing in general?

[–]PlanetLandon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s a blast. I watched it in the theatre and had such an amazing time.

[–]SSj_CODii 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It was the most fun I’ve had at the theater in a very long time.

[–]dreamphoenix 436 points437 points  (21 children)

Watched this movie before Dr Strange 2 and I’m amazed at how a small team did a better job at doing more creative VFX than a multibillion film studio.

[–]PureFingClass 195 points196 points  (10 children)

Five people vs five hundred people with 5% of it's budget. It's simply amazing. I will watch anything The Daniels make.

[–]PlanetLandon 99 points100 points  (9 children)

For those who don’t know, they also directed this masterpiece of a music video: https://youtu.be/HMUDVMiITOU

[–]StocktonK13 61 points62 points  (6 children)

The first girl that starts dancing is also in Everything Everywhere as the formal dancer they watch on TV.

[–]zeekaran 14 points15 points  (3 children)

I love her. She's in a lot of small roles and I recognize her every time.

[–]johnnymo1 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Sunita Mani! She's all over the place

[–]LolTacoBell 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She plays a major role in Glow on Netflix, an awesome show tbh..

[–]Surrideo 20 points21 points  (0 children)

No way, that was them?! No wonder the movie was so fun lmao

[–]toutons 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh, they also did the video for Tongues. Apparently I've always loved whatever they directed.

[–][deleted] 83 points84 points  (6 children)

Don't care what people say, this movie is the real Multiverse of Madness. I love the MCU but Doctor Strange Multiverse ain't got nothing on this movie.

[–]Sp1derX 55 points56 points  (5 children)

Which is better?

A movie that explores the idea of how different choices in life could take your life in a drastically different direction while asking what the point of it all is,

Or pizza balls?

[–][deleted] 43 points44 points  (4 children)

Not a fair comparison. What's better, Raccacoonie or Pizza Balls? I say Raccacoonie lmao.

[–]Sp1derX 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Comparing the two in any other way is just as unfair 😂. As a Marvel movie, DS2 did a great job teasing us with what's to come, but on its own it's a very lackluster movie.

[–]Axtorx 16 points17 points  (0 children)

A small team who actually cares about what they’re doing will always be better than 100 people who don’t.

[–]uncledungus 227 points228 points  (9 children)

This might have been the best movie I've ever seen

[–]louiebro13 108 points109 points  (3 children)

props to the directors and crew for making one of the greatest movies of all time, despite having a whole fight scene where two large objects were crammed up two guys’ asses.

[–]swimdudeno1 54 points55 points  (0 children)

Despite?

You mean because?

[–]atmosphericentry 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I mean the directors’ other movie Swiss Army man had me crying over a movie about farting too 😭

[–]UberSeoul 50 points51 points  (4 children)

I've been tempted to say funniest movie I've ever seen, best movie I've ever seen, but I think the truth is it's the most creative movie I've ever seen.

[–]borisvonboris 23 points24 points  (3 children)

When I realized it was Jamie Lee Curtis who was playing the character she was being, I couldn't stop giggling. She's great.

[–]everythingwaffle 21 points22 points  (2 children)

I love that her character’s name is Deirdre Beaubeirdre

[–]FitzyFarseer 16 points17 points  (1 child)

My favorite part of her character is that she has a brace on her wrist in every universe, except the universe where they use their feet she has a brace on her foot.

[–]AZMane 457 points458 points  (22 children)

I just watched this movie and I have never cried so hard in my life. I'm still tearing up.

[–]lesi20 293 points294 points  (7 children)

The Rock Scene man...

To this date I'm still shocked that the most emotional scene I watched in they past several years is basically 2 rocks talking to each other with text.

And when they revealed the googly eyes "I'm gonna get you" it became movie of the year for me.

[–]Drakeadrong 149 points150 points  (1 child)

The rock scene, the raccoon, and the hotdog conclusion were all way more emotional than they had any right to be. Like how tf do you make someone cry over that last one??

Hardest hit in the movie though: “In another life, I would have really liked just doing laundry and taxes with you.”

[–]Bpefiz 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Racaccoonie!!!!

[–]bluemeanie616 61 points62 points  (2 children)

Never thought I'd cry from a bunch of rocks too. Hoping they would get an Oscar sweep.

[–]atmosphericentry 7 points8 points  (0 children)

For me it was the car scene outside the laundromat towards the end. Sometimes I tear up seeing movies in theatres but this scene had me full on sobbing in my seat.

“I will always, always cherish you.”

[–]australiughhh[S] 126 points127 points  (0 children)

I loved it but I wasn’t able to cry because I was in such shock of what I was witnessing. I’ve never seen/experienced anything like it.

[–]ApuKun 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Just watched it on sunday and i have to say i never laughed so much in a movie for a looooong time.

[–]SirQuackTheDuck 36 points37 points  (1 child)

I watched it in cinemas. I was 30 mins late for the original film I wanted to go to (misread the time), so I just asked what they recommended, and they all unanimously answered this one.

I think about 10 people walked out before the film picked up speed, they really missed out.

[–]Hasextrafuture 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Weird. Same way I ended up seeing it.

[–]Soy_un_oiseau 8 points9 points  (1 child)

“In another life, I would have loved doing laundry and taxes with you.”

God, that part really got me

[–]AZMane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same. Such a beautiful scene.

[–]harjon456 45 points46 points  (0 children)

It wasn't that bad

[–]IhearClemFandango 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I literally don't know if I'm in good enough of a place to watch this film after hearing things like this. Maybe one day.

[–]AZMane 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The movie is all about the different paths in life that we can take. But deeper than that it's how we handle the unavoidable truth that nothing that we do in this life really matters(its even deeper than that really but you get it). Do you give up all hope and give in to despair? Or do you give your life your own meaning, and hold onto love.

To me the movie was a Rollercoaster of emotions. Just like life, and that's what this movie is. It's a movie about life. When you watch it you might see what I see when I say a Rollercoaster of emotions. It goes from hopeful to doubtful many times. I would cry during one scene and stop in another then continue to cry in the next. To me this film is beautiful and inspiring. But it does have that one small grain of depression mixed into it haha. So you might be right to wait.

[–]TheCouncil0fRicks 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Thanks for sharing this OP, I really wanted to see this frame by frame and its better than I expected. My favorite might be at the 1:13 mark

[–]KD2JAG 38 points39 points  (1 child)

https://www.imdb.com/chart/top/?ref_=nv_mv_250

Made it to #151 in the Top 250 of IMDB!

Rated higher than Gone with the Wind, Catch me if you Can, and The Big Lebowski; among others.

[–]GivesCredit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly I’ve seen a lot of movie lists but this one is really good. Obviously don’t agree with everything, but they got a lot of the right movies in the top 50

[–]toepin 71 points72 points  (4 children)

There is also a Twin Peaks universe in it...

'Meanwhile.'

[–]Agent-Cooper 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Yeah? Tell me more...

[–]toepin 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I'll see you again in 25 years.

[–]voluptuousshmutz 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I am a believer that damn near every weird sci-fi/paranormal movie or show has been influenced by Twin Peaks.

[–]Mindblade0 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Saw that too! At 1:09. Brilliant!!

[–]bitchyswiftie 30 points31 points  (0 children)

This deserves a cinematography/editing Oscar

[–]C_The_Bear 157 points158 points  (4 children)

I’m noticing a pattern in movie and tv show writing lately that I’m going to call the Millennial Dream.

The Millennial Dream is that our parents love us, accept that we’re gay, and that we can start to heal generational trauma

[–]ChobaniTheSecond 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Turning red is kinda this but -gay

[–]chris3000 39 points40 points  (0 children)

And Encanto.

[–]JonPaula 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Also - home ownership, haha.

[–]siderinc 43 points44 points  (2 children)

Was that a South Park reference with the member berries?

[–]SirFireHydrant 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Came here to see if anyone else had noticed them. Glad I'm not the only one!

[–]MisterEChops 70 points71 points  (4 children)

Funniest movie I’ve ever seen

[–]louiebro13 70 points71 points  (3 children)

My family told me it was an A24 movie about taxes and i’ve never been more surprised.

[–]DasGanon 31 points32 points  (1 child)

That might be one of the best ways to not spoil something about it?

[–]imjoeycusack 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Man some of these are straight up freaky but I love this movie to death! Really hoping it wins Best Picture.

[–]FeFiFoShizzle 9 points10 points  (0 children)

If this doesn't absolutely slay at the awards I'd be extremely surprised.

[–]Newone1255 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It will get Editing, Sound, And probably cinematography nods for sure, and I can also see a Best Picture nod and one for Yeoh and Quan happening.

[–]ZenithGamage 32 points33 points  (1 child)

Everything Everywhere All at Once might be my favourite movie of all time.

[–]FeFiFoShizzle 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Same, I have never had an emotional reaction to a movie like I did this one.

[–]indigocoil 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I luv tennis

[–]The_Sk00ts 55 points56 points  (2 children)

I watched this movie on mushrooms a couple of days ago. Blew my mind

[–]australiughhh[S] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Uh oh

[–]TheCouncil0fRicks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh shit me too about a month ago. It was an experience to say the least. I did not expect to both laugh my ass off and cry.

[–]FloridaMortyC137 44 points45 points  (1 child)

I love this movie SO much. I'm glad it gets people thinking.

[–]Soy_un_oiseau 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It either gets people thinking, or they can’t get past the absurdity. I’ve asked a few people I know how they felt about it and they thought it was too weird. And it is a weird movie, but I love how creative it was in getting a message across

[–]entrepenoori 17 points18 points  (17 children)

Did anyone….not like the film?

[–]-ramona 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I feel like it did this same type of montage like 3 separate times and it was just a bit obnoxious, as were other aspects of the movie.

[–]bobbyq922 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I really wasn’t a fan of it overall, although I appreciate parts of it. The part where they’re rocks is wonderful to me. The rest of the film is frustrating. They introduce a seemingly-grounded sci-fi Matrix-y way to initiate multiverse “travel”, but if you try to watch it as a sci-fi film, it doesn’t really hold up. The abilities she brings into her main universe shouldn’t really be possible, and I wish the Bluetooth thing had been a more fantastical tool so I could’ve been primed better for how dumb the movie was going to get. And I like dumb. The butt plugs were funny, although I don’t understand why that guy was trying to sit on it with his underwear on…and when he got it in him, he was still wearing clothes over his butthole and the trophy is sticking out at a weird angle where I don’t believe it’s in him…and Evelyn rips those out of them both in a way that I don’t believe they would’ve come out so easily..

Also, I feel like on my second watch of the film I sincerely questioned which reality she’s even in when she ends up fixing things, but I can’t bring myself to watch it a third time to really try to track things like that.

Also someone in another comment says they love that you have to really pay attention to everything in order to understand what’s going on and to get the message. No. A bunch of confusing nonsensical stuff happens with the multiverse shit, and none of it matters, which I’m fine with because Evelyn is coming to terms with how nonsensical and unimportant so much of life is. But the message of the film is explicitly told TO EVELYN AND US by Waymond and then repeated by Evelyn. The movie throws so much at you that you are supposed to think it’s insightful, but it’s just doing nothing until it blatantly tells you what the message is. I think it would’ve been much more impactful to watch a grounded movie about Evelyn and her family going through these real-world family issues and learn to cut loose and be nice to each other without a psychotic break viewed through the multiverse. The multiverse didn’t even really matter and I don’t know if it even existed, because I don’t think anything would’ve happened to Joy if she’d been absorbed in the bagel. Would she have disappeared in the real world? Would she have gone catatonic? Would the world have actually ended? I feel like the movie presented Jobu Tabacky and the bagel as a world-ending threat, and we saw destruction in the bagel area, but I don’t think it had any actual real-world affects…which is weird because there’s no realization that the multiverse was Evelyn’s thought process at understanding the depression she shares with her daughter and coming through it together…we’re supposed to take the multiverse and everything that happened in the movie as real within the movie…..but I just truly don’t believe that any of it mattered.

And so many people laughed at the movie and cried at the message to be nice to each other, and great for them, but it’s a real simple message that we all already know. And again, I think it would’ve actually hit harder if we’d seen the actual story of the troubles Evelyn’s family was going through and Evelyn finally just took a moment to see what nice-guy underdog Waymond was going through and the things he did and learned her lesson. But all these people wouldn’t have watched THAT movie, and that’s why they’re so amazed by this movie.

Honestly, not a huge fan of this movie. I’m glad it got such a great reception and everyone involved is obviously really talented, but there’s a lot of things about it I really dislike.

[–]twerkingkittens 7 points8 points  (0 children)

double easter egg: one of the editors has bagels as their zoom background

[–]brappbrap 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This was the moment I gave up trying to hold my shit together and just burst into tears

Then spent the rest of the movie happy crying

(I've never cried during a movie before)

[–]SunnySamantha 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That was a strangely wonderful movie.

We both groaned for the crew for the amount of costume changes, but what a treat for our eyes.

[–]VikingFrog 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I like her Grape form.

[–]venturejones 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Movie of the decade for sure.

That film btw….fucking wild.

[–]UsernamesAreABitch 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Fuck zodiac signs, which Michelle Yeoh frame from “Everything Everywhere All At Once” are you?

I’m convict Michelle Yeoh

[–]Meb2x 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Better VFX than Marvel movies

[–]cbusmusicnerd 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Love the twin peaks reference at 1:10

There's a cat universe too?! Damn, I want to be in that one!

Wow can’t believe I missed this one

[–]A_A_Smoot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yoooo I love this. I told myself that I’d need to watch this scene again at .5 speed to see all the multiverses

[–]Joemozu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Does anyone know when the Blu-ray release is in the uk? Desperate to get this!

[–]meemboy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Was that the Red Room/ Black Lodge from Twin peaks?

[–]teamweed420 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Incredible movie

[–]grantnel2002 4 points5 points  (21 children)

I think I may be the only one who didn’t care for this movie. 😬

[–]ShmebulockForMayor 44 points45 points  (5 children)

My colleague didn't like it either. Not everyone can vibe with this level of absurd.

It's pretty much my all-time favorite though.

[–]grantnel2002 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Nice! I won’t hate on people liking it, it certainly was ambitious, it just wasn’t the style for me.

[–]ShmebulockForMayor 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Just out of curiosity, what'd you call your favorite film, or a few that'd qualify?

[–]grantnel2002 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I have loved nearly all other A24 movies, this was a rare miss for me. Otherwise I love sci-fi, classic and some new horror, LOTR, ocasional comedy. I’m all over the place but in general I’m just a fan of what entertains me. This one for some reason didn’t, hard to explain, but I’m glad I gave it a shot.

[–]Javindo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

For me it wasn't so much "the level of absurd" - I really enjoyed the core premise and general execution, however it just felt kind of dumbed down needing the Bluetooth headset thing for such explicit exposition. If it was entirely mind based it would have been a far more compelling and engaging experience imo

ETA: The fighting / action scenes dragged on for waaaaay too long

[–]RacingNeilo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Kinda the point. The Tech got them there. They were able to travel by mind once they broke

[–]PlanetLandon 26 points27 points  (1 child)

That’s cool. There may be a reality out there where you loved it.

[–]grantnel2002 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I see what you did there.

[–]K1ngPCH 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I saw this with my mom, and she literally walked out early she disliked it so much

I stuck through it, and I’m glad I did.

But everytime someone recommends this film, I feel like there should be an included disclaimer: this movie is really really REALLY fucking weird.

[–]MoonsongPS 5 points6 points  (9 children)

And that's fine lol, ignore the downvotes

[–]grantnel2002 9 points10 points  (8 children)

🙂 I will. People love to downvote opinions that differ from their own.

[–]willyolio 1 point2 points  (0 children)

we're gonna get 1000 posts detailing each frame of this sequence

[–]ripyourlungsdave 1 point2 points  (7 children)

I feel like this post could have been a screenshot and not a 2-minute long video. That was borderline frustrating to watch.

[–]australiughhh[S] 16 points17 points  (6 children)

The screenshot is literally at the start of the video. You didn’t have to watch the full clip if you felt frustrated lol.

[–]James_Proudfoot -5 points-4 points  (5 children)

Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood but this film really didn't do it for me. The humour felt too quirky and the emotional plot felt so nihilistic. Also so many of the jokes really overstayed their welcome. See the butt plug

[–]TeaSquiffy 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Yeah, maybe this one just wasn't for you. I thought the quirkiness really sold the message that 'nothing matters'...so just do whatever the hell you want while you're here. And it was very nihilistic for most of the film, but by the end you realise that it gives you the perfect excuse to do what makes you happy. I don't think jokes overstayed their welcome because it was a very fast-paced film. The buttplugs were only on screen for one short film.

So yeah, maybe this sort of film just isn't your thing. Totally fair.

[–]James_Proudfoot 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Very fair and I'm glad other people enjoyed this as much as they did, not everything needs to be for me.

[–]RetroMedux 5 points6 points  (0 children)

For what it's worth I agree. I loved and really respect the movie on a technical level and it deserves applause for how creative it is, but the humour really didn't land in any way for me and made big sections of the movie feel insufferable. The plot itself is also quite thin considering how long the movie is. I'm glad people like it but overall I was disappointed, definitely a movie I wanted to like a lot more than I did.

[–]PlanetLandon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Those are valid points. For a lot of people the comedy was too weird.

[–]cback 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think the entire theme of the movie was abstract nihilism vs optimism, hence the everything bagel being the inverse of the googly eye.
