'Everything Everywhere All at Once'
"Bonkers" is the official term to describe this Charlie Kaufman-esque comic film, in which the bored operator of a laundromat keeps turning into alternate versions of herself, each with very different versions of her life. Michelle Yeoh is spectacular, shifting from the drab real world to the glamorous life of a movie star to a risk-taking secret agent to an alien creature with hot dogs for fingers. Jamie Lee Curtis costars as a tax auditor the Yeoh character keeps bumping into. And, as Yeoh's shape-shifting grandfather, 93-year-old Minneapolis native James Hong has the best role of his long movie career. (Wide release)

Last year, guitar god Carlos Santana dropped another album with a parade of guests, including Chris Stapleton, Chick Corea and, of course, Rob Thomas. While not as satisfying as 1999's landmark "Supernatural," "Blessings and Miracles" is a diverse, sincere collection, punctuated with expressive and often soaring Santana guitar work. Recent set lists indicate he might play a couple of tunes from that project along with such requisite classics as "Soul Sacrifice" and "Smooth."

Hurray for the Riff Raff

Their new album "Life on Earth," produced by Justin Vernon cohort Brad Cook, takes on more of a global view with dramatic and often thrilling results. L.A.'s Anjimile opens.

They may not be Machine Gun Kelly's cup of tea, but Iowa's masked thrash-metal vets are probably the visceral release many fans need in 2022.

Craig Taborn Trio
Jazz has been called "the sound of surprise," but all too often musicians play themselves into a rut. Not Taborn. Blending electronics with piano, the Golden Valley-raised keyboardist is a seeker who enchants listeners while challenging them to hear more deeply. After a knockout show two weeks ago at Tennessee's Big Ears Festival, he comes home for a one-nighter with drummer Dan Weiss and bassist Chris Lightcap.

Two artists talk about America
Vesna Kittleson and Christopher E. Harrison come from different cultural backgrounds, but their themes overlap like a Venn diagram in a dual exhibition at Traffic Zone Center for Visual Art. Kittelson uses abstraction to respond to today's culturally chaotic environment in her show "Letters to AmeriKa," informed by her perspective as an immigrant and outsider. Harrison centers the Black experience in America in "Currents," where organic, flowing shapes converge with sculptural portraits to explore resistance and resilience, identity and equality. (9 a.m.-7 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 9:30-7 Sat., 9:30-5 Sun. through April 29, 250 3rd Av. N., Mpls., free,
