Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★★

This is what I would call a "popcorn" flick for the mature audience. And I mean that in the most positive way.
It has a broad cast of amusing characters, It is funny, but not in a laugh out loud kind of way.
It makes you smile on the inside.
And it has a pretty clever scripted murder mystery going on, if I may say so my self.

It plays shamelessly with the "whodunit" genre conventions but never come across as parodic or silly.
On the contrary.
The movie get you hooked and keeps you so until end credits with its charming ensemble.
Hats of to the whole cast but Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas really stood out.
Are you as fed-up with superheros and "raunchy" comedies as you are with boring horror or pretentious autour ? Get your self a big popcorn and a beverage and go see Knifes Out.
It is a delight.
