Knives Out ★★★★½

Caught an early screening of this last night, and had a blast. Hilarious, wonderfully performed by the star studded cast, and a compelling and intriguing mystery that turns mischievously misleads the audience by revealing a substantial portion of itself early on. The house set is gorgeous, and as much a part of the cast as anyone. It's generally difficult to juggle a cast this large, but I was impressed how much personality was drawn out of everyone, and while of course a few are less prominent than others, everyone felt utilized. I really adored Daniel Craig's over the top drawl. The stringy score was also great, though I admit that I lost track of its presence throughout much of the movie, but it was welcome when it showed up; particularly the explosively drum filled cut in the conclusion.
