Knives Out ★★★

I think that once you subvert a subversion you basically have a crooked version of the original trope, and all this movie's cleverness is ultimately in the service of some very simplistic ideas about class and a plot that doesn't give the audience any of the mental homework that makes whodunnits fun in the first place. But it's filled with really funny lines, it moves fast, the cast is having a good time, and I admire the ambition.
