The Daniels Share Their Cinematic Vision on “The Movies That Made Me”

Known collectively as The Daniels, writer/directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert exploded onto the scene with their 2016 effort Swiss Army Man — a mindbending feature that mixed elements of comedy and surrealism to great effect. Their latest effort is the science-fiction adventure comedy metaphysical adventure Everything Everywhere All At Once, a film that is stirring up plenty of conversation about the possibilities of contemporary moviemaking.

This discussion is at the heart of the latest episode of The Movies That Made Me. As the Daniels talk about animated works that influenced them and their non-traditional filmography with hosts Josh Olson and Joe Dante, they peel back the curtain on how their work is expanding the parameters of cinema.
