Rian Johnson's murder mystery movie, Knives Out, has a well-disguised twist, but the clues are there. Here are the biggest ones you may have missed.https://s.
Acclaimed writer and director Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, The Last Jedi) pays tribute to mystery mastermind Agatha Christie in KNIVES OUT, a fun, modern-day murder mystery where everyone is a suspect. When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death.
Regardless of your thoughts on The Last Jedi, the sheer level of stick Rian Johnson received off the back of it felt entirely uncalled for. The film had its faults, for sure, but it is what it is – an unmistakably Rian Johnson Star Wars movie.

Despite much teeth gnashing from all corners of the internet, The Last Jedi was always going to be what you get when you hire the idiosyncratic talent behind Brick and Looper to direct a Star Wars instalment. In the end, such a monster of a franchise may have been an awkward fit for Johnson’s distinctive sensibilities, but it’s hard to argue that the end result wasn’t at least unique.

Whether it’s the neo-noir stylings of Brick, the time travel sci-fi of Looper, or even the caper comedy of The Brothers Bloom, through his off-kilter approach to established genres, Johnson has carved out a nice little niche all to himself. The fallout from The Last Jedi was certainly unfortunate, however, it’s heartening to see that the criticism hasn’t got to the director, as he heads straight back into the game and kills it in the only way he knows how.
