Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★½

Probably didn't help my enjoyment that I decided I'd figured out the mystery in the first ten minutes (turns out I had not). Wasn't completely satisfied with the actual resolution, and with other small matters of plot throughout, but nothing too egregious to spoil the movie for me. In any event, the fun is in the journey, not the destination, and I enjoyed watching the familial dysfunction unfold, though not as much as I anticipated.

So on the one hand, this was a bit of a disappointment. But on the other hand, if every disappointing movie was this good, I'd be a very happy moviegoer. Worth seeing for a great cast in a competent, modern take on the classic whodunit.
