Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★★

Absolutely brilliant, at first I couldn’t tear myself from the similarities to Ready Or Not in terms of aesthetic but those were soon gone when the incredibly witty writing kicked in. The plot went in ways I totally did not expect and even if the twist was pretty easy to guess by about halfway through, I was having way too much fun feeling proud of myself to care (the film should also be credited for being as clever as it is without ever feeling smug). The biggest surprise of this film is just how much Daniel Craig brings to the table; this is probably the most fun I’ve ever had with one of his characters. They really don’t make original and clever mainstream movies like this anymore.
