This movie has so many different characters and different threads, would it count as Four Lines, All Waiting ?

Does the scene with Micky, Turkish, and Tommy at the beginning of the movie count as Once More with Clarity?

At the beginning? Which scene do you mean? Generally Once More with Clarity comes after the twist — in this film, there's the bit where Turkish explains Mickey's counterscheme just after he's won the big fight.

The one where it seems Micky, Turkish, and Tommy are about to be blown away with shotguns. We have no idea why until the end of the film where the scene comes up again. Micky didn't throw the second fight. We also see why Micky didn't flinch at what seemed to be the moment of his death. The shotgun blasts we heard was Brick Top and his henchmen being blown away by Micky's friends.

That'd be How We Got Here, I suppose.

Okay, I look back at the trope and the first scene is a How We Got Here and it doesn't overlap with Once More with Clarity. However, I think the scene with the three cars is a Once More with Clarity perhaps overlapping with How We Got Here. We see Sol shoot a replica gun which bursts the windows. They argue so much that they accidentally hit a man. You would assume that is the start of chaos, but you find out that it isn't. Avi was driving with Rosebud and Tony discussing knives and swords when milk hit their window shield. The two events seem unrelated until we cut to Tommy and Turkish discussing milk and Tommy throws the milk out the window. You then hear the screech of Avi's car. Then you see Boris escape while masked and tied up and he's in the middle of the street. Then a car hits him which has to be Tyrone, Sol, and Vinny. Then we see Rosebud impaled on the sword he was holding for... well that was just Ruleof Funny. That sounds more like Once More with Clarity because you are watching the scenes in reverse and ou get different perspectives of the same event.
