2019’s Knives Out is a murder-mystery whirlwind of a movie, written and directed by Rian Johnson ( The Last Jedi, Looper). Inspired by the many works of Agatha Christie, Johnson sought to create his own whodunnit story… in his own special Rian Johnson-y way. Namely, by throwing convention and expectations out the window in favor of subversive self-reflection and satire.
