Review: Knives Out (2019)

Knives Out (2019) Knives Out (2019)

How satisfying to be in the hands of a writer/director who knows exactly what they’re doing – and to watch a stellar cast appreciating the hell out of that.

Rian Johnson‘s film making so thoughtful and tight, that every single shot / line / acting choice / prop / art direction / detail is there for a reason, either to set up or pay off, on more than one level. So satisfying. And Ana de Armas’s performance is even more wonderful to watch the second time around.

I went into this blind (no easy feat, with all the lead-up marketing and surrounding buzz), and I had as much of a ball with it as I did on the rewatch. I wish you the same – so I’ll say no more here after this: watch and enjoy.

Further Viewing – only after you’ve seen the movie!
