Written and directed by Rian Johnson and filled with so many incredible actors, namely Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis and Toni Collette; Knives Out is a good old fashioned who-done-it about the death of a patriarch of an eccentric family. Trying to solve this murder mystery is an equally eccentric detective (Daniel Craig).

There isn’t a weak link in the acting lineup with everyone delivering outstanding performances. Director Rian Johnson does well at delicately balancing a witty script and a continuous feeling of suspense. Knives Out is one of the very few original who-done-it films in recent times which successfully navigates through everything these movies quintessentially are, as well as putting it’s on spin on it.

For example, you may be surprised at how much information you learn at the start of the film, compared to other films of this genre that leak information to the audience much more slowly. It makes you re-think how you process a who-done it. This is a funny and fresh film with a fantastic script and great acting.
