Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★★½

A very clever and very enjoyable murder mystery. Carefully-constructed with a twisty plot that keeps you guessing all the way through. But the journey is truly the reward as it balances the mechanics of the story with characters in a way that is a whole bunch of fun. As with Johnson's other films, it works within a genre respectfully and with a sense of adventure as it expands the possibilities of the genre while not feeling overly constrained by them. The cast is fantastic and everyone gets to have some wonderful moments, while the film is over two hours long, it zipped by and I'm looking forward to seeing it again.
