Knives Out Movie Review: Story
Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is a private detective investigating the death of a famous author Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer). Harlan was a famous mystery writer and built a literary empire. The editorial arm is now run by his son Walt (Michael Shannon). Walt is angry at the fact that he has not been granted powers to negotiate an agreement for the cinematographic and television rights of his father’s works. He feels that more money can be earned through them. He is married to Donna (Riki Lindhome) and has a son, Jacob (Jaeden Martell), who has neo-Nazi alliances. Harlan’s daughter, Linda (Jamie Lee Curtis), is real estate mogul who prides herself on having made herself, although her business started with a loan of one million dollars from her father. She is married to Richard (Don Johnson), who lives on his wife’s money and is not happy with that. They have a son, Ransom (Chris Evans), who is again a wasteful man. She has a daughter-in-law named Joni (Toni Collette), who is a self-help guru; however, in reality, she and her daughter Meg (Katherine Langford) have been living off Harlan’s wealth. Benoit’s investigation guides him to believe that Harlan had changed his will and was in the process of cutting off all his relatives. In light of this finding, our clumsy Sherlock, helped by his equally inept Watson, Harlan’s young caregiver, Marta (Ana de Armas), who tended to vomit every time she told a lie, tries to identify the murderer.
As stated earlier, Knives Out Movie Review is a mixture of genres. Then you have the upper class expressing their support for the plight of immigrants without really knowing where Marta came from. Everyone who names a different nation as their country of origin is one of the jokes of the movie. The internal functioning of a dysfunctional family is also included in the work. Skeletons regularly emerge as the plot develops. Everyone is exposed to being hypocrites, except Marta, who retains her humanity during the madness.
The casting is excellent. Chris Evans, chosen as a rake, is a deviation from his role as captain of America. Don Johnson does not say much but reveals everything through his body language. The last scene in which he understands that his wife found out about his indiscretions stays with you. Ana de Armas is a delight like a girl who can’t lie. Toni Collette and Jamie Lee Curtis have also brought their A-game to the movie. Amid all the talent for acting, Daniel Craig stands out as the detective of gentle manners, with a ball that affects a thick accent and the traits associated with classic detectives, giving one of the best reviews of his career.
The film wobbles a little towards the second half, but that is because director Rian Johnson wanted to employ every known comparison of the detective novel in his film. However, you are hooked to the end, thanks to the nostalgia and humor that the film throws into cubes.
