    Benoit Blanc can be back as often as he wants, in my opinion, and it seems Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig are interested in doing as several more Knives Out Mysteries. The second, Glass Onion (a title that fits the movie, but I'm sad doesn't riff on the original's), assembles a cast of potential murderers on a private island so we can have a nice old go at the filthy rich and other influential jackasses - Kate Hudson is particularly funny, but Edward Norton likely to most relevant to today - during the height of the pandemic, no less. It's kind of a modern And Then There Were None situation. What works so well with Blanc is that he seems a character out of time, an Agatha Christie character somehow existing in our modern world, a little befuddled by it, or perhaps playing Columbo to the rich pricks he's constantly investigating. It's fun and charming. Lots of twists and turns, turning the closed room mystery on its head, often by having the camera/editing lie to the audience, or rather, cut around clues that would be too revealing too early. In a sense, we're characters in the room, overhearing this bit of business and not that one, but all will eventually be revealed and make absolute sense. Johnson pays off lots of little details, actually and thematically, and additional viewing will probably highlight more. And that absolutely cracking ending! 1 year 5 months ago

    Oh, Rian Johnson can make a few more of those if it were up to me :)
    There's no single non-entertaining moment in 2:20h, how many streaming flicks will give you that?

    First one was a bit grander and old-fashioned in a lovable way, so much is clear.
