Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★★

I was sure I had this figured out going in, but alas the mystery runs deeper! Delightfully hammy performances all around, but the cast is unfortunately too big for the story and don’t all get ample opportunities to shine. The script is well written, deliciously twisty and quite witty; the best stuff is not in the trailers. It also gets political throwing around terms and acronyms (“alt-right” and “SJW” chiefly among them) that Rian Johnson for sure pulled from his Twitter replies as Star Wars fans continue to debate The Last Jedi. It’s a fun two hours that will delight families - most families - this Thanksgiving season.
