Knives Out

Knives Out ★★★★½

Third viewing, with the wife. The more I watch it, the more keyed-in I get to the kindnesses exchanged between the characters we’re meant to care about—how decency itself becomes a key theme. If we’re to take the film as a metaphor for American in the year 2019, Johnson is offering it as a path forward. To quote The Last Jedi, “That's how we're gonna win. Not fighting what we hate, but saving what we love.”
