Knives Out ★★★★★

Rian Johnson writing the ‘Knives Out’ screenplay:

The single best theater experience I’ve had all year. Rian Johnson fanboy though I may be, I tempered my expectations slightly to try and anticipate him returning to genre fare in a more typical sense- and to be blunt, I am an absolute fool to expect anything less of the man than the unexpected. And of course, the ability to fashion stories so uniquely appealing to my sensibilities, that I would swear I wrote this in another lifetime, even if I couldn’t do it half as well. ‘A Rian Johnson whodunnit’ is what I wanted, and that is exactly what I got. A perfect film? I don’t know about that. A perfect I cinematic experience? Absolutely. My entire crowd applauded. I want eight more Benoit Blanc mystery films where he and De Armas team up to solve crimes. Also, Ana de Armas IS this movie, and she drives this bitch like she stole it. 

Hail to the motherfuckin’ king, bitches.
