🧅 NON SPOILER REVIEW OF GLASS ONION 🧅 by Marlon McCaulsky
Synopsis: Tech billionaire Miles Bron invites his friends for a getaway on his private Greek island. When someone turns up dead, Detective Benoit Blanc is put on the case.
My thoughts: Director Rian Johnson sequel to his hit murder mystery/who done it, Knives Out is brilliant. If you enjoyed the first one you are going to love this. This film is set during the early days of the pandemic and its incorporated perfectly.
The ensemble cast led by Daniel Craig includes Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista. Everyone is great and the performances are top notch but the standout here is Janelle Monáe who is integral to the plot in the most unexpected way. I will not be surprised if she gets a best supporting actor nomination.
This film is fun, funny, and sharp. The screenplay is so sharp and Rian Johnson does an excellent job dropping clues right in front of your face that pays off later in the film. The reveals will have you asking yourself why didn't you see that coming? The twists are great and unexpected. The cinematography is excellent.
This is a Netflix film with a limited one week theater run. Go see this in theaters! This film is such a great big screen experience.
I highly recommend this film.
