Knives Out

You skipped the funeral, but you’re early for the will reading.

I didn’t think this would have much to offer on a second viewing but seeing how Rian Johnson pulls the story together, with the knowledge of how it pans out, is really entertaining.

I love how a film can be so funny without destroying any sense of atmosphere or investment in the story. Perhaps lightning can’t strike twice, but as I said before I’d happily watch another Benoit Blanc mystery.
