    Call me a sucker for a good murder mystery, but this one checked all of the boxes. It was funny, interesting, well-acted, and a fun story. The way this film mirrors a classic murder mystery but still feels fresh and unique is something to behold. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who didn't enjoy this movie on some level. Both casual moviegoers and obsessive film snobs can agree on this one.

    From writer/director Rian Johnson comes the murder mystery Knives Out. When Harlan Thrombey is found dead of an apparent, but suspicious, suicide renowned detective Benoit Blanc is hired to uncover the truth. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, and Christopher Plummer, the performances are especially good. And Johnson does an impressive job at constructing the mystery, along with devising clues that lead Blanc to unravel it. Additionally, Nathan Johnson provides an exceptional score that compliments the tone and heights the tension and suspense. Entertaining and fun, Knives Out is a captivating whodunit.
