Glass Onion A Knives Out Mystery

Netflix’s comedy crime film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery has already made $13 million in just one week of release.  In a nutshell, Knives Out is Netflix’s latest comedy crime mystery film starring Daniel Craig and Edward Norton as two detectives chasing a serial killer who sends them cryptic clues that they must decipher to catch the figure. The clues often lead them down blind alleys, before they finally get their answer after finding the culprit. Glass Onion earned largely positive reviews with a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and even won best-of-show at several film festivals around the world. The movie was released in theatres for only one week in a special deal with Netflix, where it had more than 600 theatrical showings over the weekend of Nov. 29 and every day since. But that was not the plan at first as the streaming giant originally intended to release the movie exclusively to its subscribers on Dec. 23, in what is potentially a first for the company.

What is the film about?

Netflix’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery tells the story of two detectives on a case, who have to solve complex murder cases by piecing together clues. The detectives are impatient and like to cut corners, but are always met with failure until one day, they get a breakthrough in the investigation. The movie takes place in London and two detectives, Benoit Blanc and Poppy Parnell (played by Daniel Craig and Jessica Chastain) are tasked with solving a serial murder case by deciphering clues that send them in circles. The last clue leads them to someone who looks like the killer. But it seems that the person has an alibi and is not the real killer after all.

What makes this film interesting?

The movie has some actors who are not yet household names, but they brought the right skills to the table that elevated the movie to the next level. The two main characters of the movie, Poppy and Benoit are played by Jessica Chastain and Daniel Craig respectively. The pair is quite similar in terms of acting style, which led to lackluster performances from them in some parts of the film. But Jessica stands out more than Daniel as her acting does not seem forced or fake. She almost seems real and can easily play off her colleague Daniel Craig.

Who can watch this film?

Anyone who likes detective thrillers or crime dramas will find this movie appealing and interesting. In addition to the good acting, the movie has a good plot that keeps viewers hooked to their seats till the end of the film. Netflix’s Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is a hit among audiences, and will remain so for some time in the foreseeable future.
