Knives Out

Any one of them couldadunnit.

Rian Johnson comes down to Earth, in style, after directing Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Instead of galactic empires, we have one tight-knit American family, though that yarn is all snarled up.

Poster for the whodunnit hit Knives OutIts elderly patriarch, a successful author named Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), has been found dead, with his throat slit, and Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), a swaggering Southern detective, is hired to uncover what happened. Johnson obeys the rules of the murder mystery while reserving the right to make fun of them, and, in the process, to incriminate most of his characters – not as killers, necessarily, but as selfish souls. The tale is set in a dark and overdecorated mansion, and the cast, too, leans comically and deliciously close to excess.

– Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
