Kn8fes Out

Posted on  by admin

Rian Johnson got the initial concept for Knives Out as far back as 2005, after completing his debut feature film, Brick.He first brought it up publicly in 2010, when he told the Independent that he would be interested in writing and directing an Agatha Christie-style whodunit after finishing his then-current project, 2012’s Looper. 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. Knives Out is just a really well told movie. For 2 hr., 10 min., this is finely paced and edited. Johnson really knows how to steer the story, especially the beginning and introduction to the facts of the case.
