    Knives Out

    ★★★★

    A whirlwind of fun and capers in the style of Clue and House of Games. But there’s just enough acid wit thrown in to make a point about class politics, too, giving this film an edge on its predecessors. And then there’s Daniel Craig, sporting a completely ridiculous Louisiana accent and having the time of his life. Benoit Blanc is 100% worthy of syndication.

    ★★★

    Like most Stephen Soderbergh films, Side Effects is slick, clever, and enormously entertaining. You have to suspend an awful lot of disbelief to swallow the resolution, though.

    The Late Show

    It’s a little dated, and the mystery around which the plot revolves is too complicated for its own good. However, this affectionate, gently parodic homage to the golden age of film noir remains charming and funny.
