Knives Out

Knives Out is such a burger of genre. And yet Benoit Blanc describes the case as a doughnut. Bryan and Eliza talk Rian Johnson’s masterful whodunnit meets Hitchcock thriller, discussing how his giving the characters depth keeps the story from being a mere murder mystery and how he deliberately handled both genres to create a stimulating and suspenseful movie that subverts (almost) all one’s expectations. Also, a comparison to Brick (2005), a reference to Sleuth (1972), and a chat about Nathan Johnson’s wonderful music in this film. All clues point to a great podcast episode.
