Sit down, strap in, and brace yourself for an acid-trip thrill ride like you’ve never seen before. Written and directed by Daniels (Kwan and Scheinert), the film defies explanation or description—so let’s just go with… “Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) discovers she has superpowers and ventures into a multi-verse to battle evil.” But there’s something about a bagel, a raccoon, and hot dog fingers. Plus, there’s Jamie Lee Curtis as a frumpy IRS agent with mad karate skills, and Ke Huy Quan returns to the screen after 20 years to shepherd Evelyn through the whack-a-doo, brain-melting absurdity. It’s flat-out fantastic and begs to be watched over and over… just so you can attempt to wrap your head around it.

4.5/5 stars
