Knives Out was directed by Rian Johnson, and stars Ana de Armas, Daniel Craig, and Chris Evans.
Knives Out was one I kind of wanted to watch when it came out, but I just never did. Glad I watched it now though.
I really liked the score. It was filled with wonder, suspense, and mystery. The cinematography was very good as well (as was expected from Rian Johnson).
The acting was hit or miss. Some performances, like Chris Evans, were great, but others, such as Daniel Craig or Ana de Armas, were sub-par.
Knives Out had many twists and turns in the story that I very much enjoyed. It’s presented as a whodunnit at first, but then you think you know whodunnit (Marta) pretty early on, until the end where it’s revealed Ransom actually dunnit. The twists were probably the best part of this movie. The story in general was very good.
The hyper-current jokes about the current political climate in America, Twitter, and Instagram felt pretty out of place to me. I felt as though they didn’t really fit the tone of the movie. They seemed a bit forced at times as well. They did, at least, provide some tension within the Thrombey family.
Thanks so much to @corey.hecdivert for recommending this one.
