We might still be processing the existential beauty of Daniels’ latest project, but they are here to break down one of our favorite scenes from the film.

If you haven’t watched Everything Everywhere All at Once, then you are missing out on some of the most fun and emotionally moving fight sequences of cinematic history. Each fight is motivated by the characters’ emotional desires to live in or out of the existential conundrum of the multiverse.
