GLASS ONION: A KNIVES OUT MYSTERY

OPENING NIGHT

US CINEMA

US 2022, 139 min, Director: Rian Johnson

Let’s just say that Rian Johnson has outdone himself in his wonderful new Knives Out (MVFF42) romp, bringing together a to-die-for ensemble of actors who portray a group of sometime friends—disruptors all—summoned to an exotic, futuristic island hideaway. Their mega-rich one-time leader and eccentric-genius comrade Miles (Edward Norton) has a game set up: to solve the mystery of his murder. Of course each guest has a motive, and all know each other well enough to glean what those murky motives might be. It’s looking like a weekend of fun, luxury, and designer cocktails. But curiously, Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), the best detective ever, has somehow landed an invitation, too. And where Benoit goes, murder is likely to follow. Buckle up as this amazing cast takes us on a riotous ride leading to a smashing climax. Irreverence abounds, hilarity ensues, one-liners are delivered with aplomb (Kate Hudson!), the uber-cool reigns (Leslie Odom Jr.), and the question remains: Whodunnit?? —Zoë Elton
