Review: Glass Onion
Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is back to solve another mystery. This time, a tech billionaire Miles (Edward Norton) has invited his friends to his private island in Greece during the middle of the pandemic to solve a murder mystery game. Of course, it ends up being much more than that.
I loved Knives Out and I fully support Rian Johnson making a Benoit Blanc cinematic universe. The character is just great and watching him shine again was a delight.
Again, Johnson is taking on the rich, but this time he's also taking on influencer culture and performative activism as a whole. This is one of those movies that's going to benefit from rewatching just to catch all clues you missed. I liked it immediately after watching it, but the more I saw with it, and talked about it with folx online, the more I loved it.
Craig lays it on thick at the beginning but eventually finds his groove and it's just a joy to see him again. Janelle Monae is the star this time around. I loved watching her and the final shot of her is just...*chef's kiss*
I can't wait for the third installment.
