Whodunits are great.
From the classics like Chinatown, Clue, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, to even the more recent appropriately titled Adam Sandler and Jennifer Anniston Netflix movie Murder Mystery, it’s hard to not love the format. For a film like Knives Out though, they got EVERYONE to star in it.
Well maybe not everyone, but the cast is star-studded. Directed by Rian Johnson the cast includes Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer. The family’s father (Plummer) is murdered and it’s up to the detective (Craig) to find out who is the culprit. The dialogue is great, the acting is a masterclass, anyone could be guilty, and Chris Evans tells everyone to eat shit.
