Knives Out movie director: Rian Johnson
Knives Out movie rating: 3.5 stars
An old country house full of curios and creaking stairs; scores of relatives and a man who controls their destinies; and a murder. Who doesn’t like a good old mystery like that?
Johnson writes and directs this story, set in Agastha Christie mould, with fewer twists than one expects. The centrality of its surprise, in fact, lies in how simple and straightforward it is. It may not give you the thrills of having solved a crime ahead of the filmmakers, but the film might just reinforce your faith in the goodness of hearts, without the burden of any deep-set sociological analysis. Plus, Knives Out clearly wants to do well with its politics at a time of Donald Trump, delivering a rather on-the-nose message about nice immigrants and seeming-to-be-nice Americans.
That it all goes down so smoothly has to do well with the cast of Knives Out — with Craig, Curtis, Collette and Plummer, especially, slipping into their roles with relish. Craig is a private detective by the mouth-watering name of Benoit Blanc, who keeps a watch on the goings-on of the house from the comforts of an armchair in a corner, smoke drifting up from the end of his cigar, but is as quickly down on his knees to observe a carpet for mud marks. “The last of the gentleman sleuths” is how one character describes him. Craig plays Blanc with a thick accent, an affected Hercule Poirot manner, and a growing sense of outrage.
Plummer is lord of the manor Harlan Thrombey, a best-selling mystery books writer who has been found with his throat slashed in “suspected” suicide. His appearances are brief but this is a role Plummer can master in his sleep, and he doesn’t disappoint.
Collette is his floaty daughter-in-law Joni, who makes skincare products but sees herself as more of a woke lifestyle guru; Curtis is his eldest child, Linda, a hard-nosed real-estate mogul. Curtis chews the scenes she is in. The others, including Evans (a bit too much of a cliche as the wasted rich playboy), play a houseful of Harlan’s relatives.
The odd one out is Marta (Armas), who was Harlan’s nurse/care giver, and was the last one to see him alive. In true manner of well-meaning rich people, the Thrombeys all go out of their way to insist that Marta is “like family”. And yet, none of them knows which country she comes from, just some South American one — Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil, are some options on offer.
When the chips begin to fall, and it’s not a real surprise how they do, family secrets are revealed, frictions surface, masks are dropped, and the knives come out. However, little blood is spilled, even as the film leaves you with the tantalising possibility that the last may not have been heard of the Thrombeys and Monsieur Blanc.
With a surfeit of pretentious, over-produced and downright boring movies to signal this as one of the worst holiday seasons ever, many people crave a good old-fashioned murder mystery modeled after one of those intricately plotted page turners by Agatha Christie. Like me, they want a perfect head-scratcher, like Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile. Knives Out, from writer-director Rian Johnson (Star Wars:The Last Jedi), is not it, but as a spoof of Christie, it has a few giggles that in the final 15 minutes turn into guffaws.

SEE ALSO: ‘Waves’ Is a Demanding and Absorbing Family DramaThat comment is not meant as a negative. Intentional or not, this alleged thriller is more of a comedy, and maybe I’m just jaded, but to me, there isn’t a genuine thrill in sight. Still, I found it an enjoyable enough way to pass the time between clichés. The plot: Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer), a rich and famous crime novelist, is found the morning after his 85th birthday party, on the floor of his gloomy old country mansion with his throat slashed. The next two hours asks “whodunit”?
KNIVES OUT ★★★
It could be any member of his creepy staff or dysfunctional family. Everyone has a motive and they’re all suspects, including the old man’s daughter Linda (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her greedy husband Richard (Don Johnson), their worthless playboy son Ransom (Chris Evans) who has been disinherited on the night of the murder as the black sheep of the family, son Walt (Michael Shannon) who has just been fired from running his father’s publishing company, daughter-in-law Joni (Toni Collette) who has been discovered stealing $100,000 year from Harlan, her avaricious daughter Meg (Katherine Langford), and, most important of all, Harlan’s devoted private nurse and personal confidante Marta (Ana de Armas), a Guatemalan immigrant and the only person in the house who supposedly had nothing to gain from his demise.
One by one, their lies, secrets, crimes and misdemeanors are discovered by Benoit Blanc, “the last of the gentleman detectives,” played by a miscast Daniel Craig with a cornball Southern accent that sounds like a mouth full of fried grits.
In a concerted effort to keep the final reveal a secret, Johnson asks the audience in a filmed prologue not to become whistleblowers—an unnecessary request, to be sure, since Knives Out is so crammed full of plot twists, blackmail notes, toxicology reports and red herrings that you couldn’t explain what happens at gunpoint.

Who hired Benoit Blanc, a cross between Hercule Poirot and Li’l Abner, anonymously? Who switched Harlan’s meds and filled his veins with morphine? I left asking more questions than the film ever answers, but it’s worth the effort when you get an occasional line of real wit like Craig’s description of a reading of the will as “a community theatre production of a tax return.”
