Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★½

"A donut hole inside a donut hole"

It's nice to see the simplicity of the classic whodunnit again, even if it ends up getting a little convoluted by the ending. Knives Out is clever and twisty enough to be enjoyable as a mystery, and has some funny moments too. Some of the twists were a bit of a stretch, but it was never enough to break my immersion. Daniel Craig's Benoit Blanc carries the film, more than making up for the lackluster supporting characters. I wish the family members had more time to be fully fleshed out.
