Dear Mr Rian Johnson
I know you probably have a million ideas for many brilliant films, and you may even be ballsy enough to piss off Star Wars fanboys again by making a new entry in that series. All fine and good.
But please, PLEASE sir, spend the rest of your life making new Knives Out films. All I want is Daniel Craig loving life, playing a fanciful and eccentric detective, making a mockery of Rich, Entitled, Narcissistic Dipshits. The world is a better place with Benoit Blanc.
A very charming and laid-back experience beginning to end. Despite opening with the main character finding a murder victim in their apartment, the film never wants or tries to take itself too seriously.
With an old fashioned neo-noir set-up, the film ends up being 98 minutes of reminding everyone that Jon Hamm is one of the best of the business and it is an absolute sin that this man NEVER got to be Bruce Wayne/Batman. Like, he'd do a good…
So this one was a massive give and take for me, but my overall feelings are honestly more on the positive than the negative. It's a film that does certain things so damn well that you can tell that if the worse aspects of the film had been improved on then this could've been a genuine classic. For what it is though, it's honestly some flawed but ambitious fun.
The best thing and the true star of the film is…
