Milez Das (Rohit Shivdas)’s review published on Letterboxd:
There has been a murder at Thrombey mansion. Wealthy crime novelist Harlan Thrombey has been found with his throat slit. The whole family is surprised but not too much. It was ruled suicide until private detective Benoit Blanc steps in to investigate. Heads are turned, secrets start to reveal, lies are vomited and a there comes a twist in the tale.
From the first frame itself, you know you are in for a fun ride that will keep you on you edge of the seat. It will thrill, it will make you laugh and most importantly it will keep you entertained Writer-Director Rian Johnson brings an Agatha Christie esque tale, walking on tip toes and the style that makes you remember the good old days of murder mysteries.
To talk about Knives Out, it starts off with the basic privilege family drama, the events that start to suspect everything and everyone. Money being the center of it and a nurse. Characters are shown in the reality through lies they tell. The secrets the hide and the conversation that can lead to the knife.
To talk more about the movie itself will make a crime. It is to be enjoyed and solved with the great Benoit Blanc and his Watson (hopefully) Marta Cabrera. Knives Out is filled with great performances from the ensemble but the real MVP is Ana de Armas, she just shines and shines. When you come out of the movie she will be the only person you will be talking about. She is a superstar, Blade Runner 2049 was the start, Knives Out is the kick and soon No Time to Die will be hers to won.
Daniel Craig is just so stylish in his character and his southern accent. I mean he is so hot here. He has this natural aura to him, you can't just resist. Michael Shannon really makes an amusing work through his character while Jamie Lee Curtis and Chris Evans are just enjoying themselves.
Knives Out is the perfect movie and that last shot is just chef's kiss. I mean Fuck Yeah! I really enjoyed this one.
