Knives Out ★★★

Can’t say I didn’t enjoy myself, script is clever enough and there are some good jokes here, and the genre itself is always a delight. Maybe Johnson’s experiences with the Star Wars fanboys have scarred him, but he doesn’t trust his material enough to convey his message. He’s screaming to the back row, which is good for those who can’t hear but a bitch for the rest of us. A little too convinced of its own cleverness, a lot of moving parts but ultimately the mystery is Agatha Christie on a bad day. The movie is revolutionary in that it is the first made by an utterly twitter poisoned mind. It takes one to know one.
