Not your typical whodunit

But it’s not your classic whodunit. There are plenty of twists along the way. It helps to keep you on your toes, as you work through the highs and lows of the case.

The storytelling is certainly what makes it a movie to watch. You think you know how it’s all going to end, but the smart storytelling tells you how it will end without you even realizing it. When you watch it again, the clues are there, but they didn’t stand out the first time around.

With an all-star cast, you’d be forgiven for expecting things to fail. There’s always that thought that it will just be a gimmick, but it turns out to be a smartly written and performed movie. The actors are in roles you’ve not seen them in before, which helps to add a new layer to their performances.

It’s not often that a movie gets the support from critics and audiences, but Knives Out is rightly one of them. On Rotten Tomatoes, it’s Certified Fresh with a 97% score from the critics and a 92% score from the audiences. This is a must-watch right now.
