Rian Johnson stated the idea of Knives Out was to take a traditional whodunit and insert a Hitchcockian thriller into it. And holy crap, did he do it so successfully!
Knives Out is probably the best movie of the year for me so far. It's awesome, and I highly recommend it. The cast is amazing, and everyone has great chemistry as friends, enemies, and any other type of relationship in between. Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, and Ana de Armas are the standouts for me, personally. The comedy is great, and laugh-out-loud funny. Not only that, but the story is intriguing, and a great modern take on the whodunit story. Johnson also adds twists and turns you don't see coming, which actually work and are successful in moving the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I honestly don't have any real complaints. As I said, Knives Out is a movie I would highly recommend. It's fun, mysterious, intriguing, and all around entertaining.
