Such a fun follow up to Knives Out! I think having a smaller cast of characters worked in the film’s favour, and each member of the cast gets their moment to shine, particularly Janelle Monáe, who steals every scene she is in!
Sidenote: this is the second day in a row where I have heard Starman by David Bowie playing in a 2022 film/television show distributed by Netflix.
Absolutely loved many of the stylistic choices here! The direction, cinematography and editing help give a story we’ve seen many times a unique identity of its own.
That being said, I personally felt the film dragged quite a bit in its final act and it sadly loses a bit of steam as a result. The ending does however bring everything full circle in a satisfying and thematic way, so it’s not too bad.
