Glass Onion

Glass Onion ★★★★½

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is a lavishly layered and terrifically twisty takedown of new wealth and the idiocy of the elite. Rian Johnson’s screenwriting is as sensationally sharp and slick as ever (the final act is a work of art), but Janelle Monáe runs away with the movie, even in an ensemble as uniformly entertaining as this one (another special shout-out to the hysterical Kate Hudson). In the end, the film is as much a showcase for Johnson’s snappy screenplay as it is for Monáe’s staggering stardom, and if we lived in a just world, this would be her awards breakthrough.

Can’t wait to watch again.
