Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★★

This is such a structurally terrific movie. But even on a rewatch, when the plot twists and the ingenuity of its genre switch from a whodunit to a Hitchcockian thriller are already familiar, it’s still a delight. This is thanks to the uniformly excellent cast. Jamie Curtis and Toni Colette, in particular, deliver virtuoso comedic performances. They’re not just hamming it up here, they’re providing subtle, nonverbal corroboration for the logical leaps their characters take in their transformations from benign wielders of power to cutthroat desperadoes.
