My review of Knives Out, for The Tulsa Voice. Writer/Director Rian Johnson (The Last Jedi, Looper) reinvigorates the murder mystery genre with a sharp script and all-star cast.

A review excerpt:

“Knives Out isn’t just a clever homage to Agatha Christie whodunits; it replicates her formula and then goes beyond, not only in depth of intrigue but also emotional resonance and moral weight. Anchored by a breakthrough performance from up-and-coming actress Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Knives Out is a riveting crowd pleaser that registers on a much richer level than most plot-driven genre movies.”
