Those who have seen the Daniels’ Everything Everywhere All at Once, knows how much of a masterpiece it is.
It’s new, weird, wacky, daring. That’s why it’s doing well in box offices and might do well in award shows. It pushes the boundaries of story, protagonists, and film form.
Just like Twenty One Pilots, Andy Warhol, Inside by Bo Burnham, Chloe Zhao. It stretches creativity.
Nobody wants normal. Nobody wants to watch the same movie with slightly different plot points.
Now comes the challenge of pushing the boundaries of my art.
How can I be more daring? How can I care less about what people think? How can I subvert their expectations?
