Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★★

The shot of the two detectives scoffing scornfully at the idea of Marta's inability to tell a lie... goodness is rarely praised or rewarded.

This potentially worked even better for me upon rewatch. Craig and De Armas continue to delight, and it's surely one of the best written and directed films of the past few years, with terrific foreshadowing and so much more going on beneath the surface than is initially obvious (the baseball!!). While I once again got slightly lost towards the end when everything is getting wrapped up so quickly (and I'm inclined to think that's more my fault rather than the film's), I'm still left with a stupid grin on my face once Sweet Virginia begins to kick in.
