Main Cast


Reviews


  • Joe Morgernstern (Wall Street Journal)

    An entertainment that's as smart, witty, stylish and exhilarating as any movie lover could wish for.

  • Peter Bradshaw (Guardian)

    There's a great deal of lively and funny shenanigans with poisons and antidotes, and Johnson delivers a stab of cheerful cynicism.

  • John Wenzel (Denver Post)

    Knives Out deserves to be explored as a world of it own, as Johnson balances moral conscience and black humor expertly within the constraints of the murder-mystery genre.
