Josh Needle’s review published on Letterboxd:
RIAN! FUCKIN! JOHNSON!
This was everything I was hoping for and more, but in typical RJ fashion, not quite in the way I was expecting. The hype is real. Knives Out is as fun, thrilling, and well-spun of a murder mystery web as everybody says, and I had a total blast watching it all unfold. The cast is probably the most entertaining ensemble you’ll see all year, with Daniel Craig once again showing he’s capable of far more than running around shooting at spies, and going full on show stealer here...though honestly, so does almost everyone else (also Ana De Armas is the most likable woman on earth, protect her at all costs).
It’s smart, it’s charismatic, it’s funny as hell, and it’s everything you could want from a Rian Johnson whodunnit...though I would think we should expect nothing less from the writer/director of the second greatest Star Wars film ever made 🤷🏻♂️
I can’t wait until I see it again!
