Knives Out

Knives Out, 8.5/10, is the answer to the question: What do you get if you bring together a hugely talented cast, a script full of suspense and a sharpened version of the who-done-it murder mystery genre.

When a renowned crime novelist passes away on the night of his birthday a detective is brought in to investigate the suspicious nature of his death.

I was completely engaged for the duration of the runtime. The astonishing twists and turns that director/writer Rian Johnson makes will have you hooked and on the edge of your set. With all great murder mysteries you need a cast that can shake off those genre tropes. Thankfully the cast of Knives Out has brought that much loved genre into 2019 with every character being so well thought-out and delivered that you weirdly end up believing their respective alibis despite their blatant disloyalty and self-interest. Knives Out is magnificent, for a film with so much suspense you will be surprised to know that it is also bloody hilarious.
