How to watch Knives Out online (with a free trial)
After copping an unnecessary amount of heat for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (the best Star Wars movie), Rian Johnson cleansed his palate with nerd tears and went about his business, creating some of the most compelling mainstream Hollywood movies with 2019’s Knives Out.
This Clue-like murder mystery turns the tables on your typical whodunit by letting the viewer in on the secret early. We quickly learn whodunit but what we don’t know is why they dunit. There are satisfying twists at every turn as we learn more about the bitter and privileged family of the victim, wealthy novelist, and patriarch Harlan Thrombey.
