The new amazing movie about crime and mystery called Knives Out is like a donut filled with cream, chocolate and all the ingredients you would ever want in a donut, it is just incredible. It is around the film like this sweet, with constant plot twists, very crazy dialogues, and a family of the most particular kind, all mixed together perfectly to achieve a state of drama and complexity that's just on point.
Watch it online so that you can see it by yourself. It is a film that serves more than entertaining, the social criticism that is seen between conversations, characters and other incentives of this production, will not leave indifferent.
The cast of luxury-level actors is another wonderful thing you can see in this movie: from Daniel Craig to Chris Evans, and other wonderful actors that make outstanding performances like Ana de Armas, Toni Collette, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, etc, etc, it's a long list, all of them very well capacitated to wonderfully play their roles in the complex plot, but if we'd have to choose one to highlight it would be, without a doubt, the beautiful Ana de Armas, the great protagonist of the film.
We had not met her before in a role this good and when we noticed that she was so good in this movie, she honestly left us speechless, the very good role played by this actress, who rubs shoulders among large and even some of them, faces them. We really do not know in what genre we should put this production, it has a little bit of everything, and its cast is prepared for everything as well, they are so talented it seems unreal to see this in a movie that's relatively unexpected. Watch it now and you'll understand what we're talking about.
In the file it says that it is crime, intrigue, and drama, but we would add that it is a tragicomedy or a film like life itself, with constant twists, as if it was a road and you the aimless driver, you will never know what's coming next, the movie will surprise you, and even if you guess some things, it won't be annoying to keep watching, since each every shot and performance is a masterpiece.
Although it lasts two hours and a peak, it actually feels very short, time flies watching Knives Out because everything is happening constantly and without the spectator getting bored on any occasion. Some characters come out more than others, but I have to confess that it is a dream cast, luxury and full of actors and actresses of several generations working together is madness of good!
We like how the director makes the house where all the events happen come alive, that she is a silent protagonist, but with much to tell. Another wonderful thing about this movie is the use of "flashback", but in the old way, which makes us have a better perspective of the plot, the characters and what happened that crazy night.
Knives Out is like a polyhedron or a prism with many faces of a story and as you look at one place or another, you will begin to make your place composition. We were not knowing what we were going to find watching it, we had only heard very good reviews from Toronto, but we usually ignore what some people say so we don't get disappointed. So Rian Johnson has made the cast have a blast with this movie and that the viewer has fun in the old way. A nostalgic film in the 21st century.
