Knives Out ★★★★

It might be reassuring to know that the titular weapons of Knives Out are not metaphorical, but appear in their full, perilous glory for all to see. In the study belonging to famed mystery-novel writer Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), there sits a chair; behind it sits an ominous collection of daggers arranged in a circular display, all pointing directly at the chair’s occupant. The threat of a secret spilled manifests itself as the members of the wealthy Thrombey clan are each interrogated for their possible involvement in their patriarch’s demise—each one under the scrutiny of dozens of knives aimed in one direction.
