Easily the best looking entry of the series so far, A Haunting in Venice entertains despite its somber atmosphere. It’s an ensemble film that actually gives each character their due, with each one feeling narratively significant and distinct. Branagh’s character is by far the most appealing and fleshed-out as he’s ever been, and even the weaker supporting players hold some intrigue. While the ultimate conclusion tries too hard to satisfy, the mystery felt along the way offers enough viable alternatives…
The sense of humor doesn't appeal to me, and it's uneven as a document of "lockdown culture," but it tells its story well.
I just find it odd how heavily this movie highlights the hateful, slur-filled language that exists on Reddit forums without ever really unpacking it. There are so many references to horrible comments, and we're repeatedly told to just ignore them. Why even bring it up?
