Glass Onion director Rian Johnson wants to crack down on the murder mystery genre, just like Agatha Christie

Rian Johnson, like anyone who wrote the private detective character, is completely indebted to Agatha Christie. She was the beacon, the ideal, and Johnson fully admitted it. At the press conference for “Glass Onion” at the BFI London Film Festival, attended by our own Hannah Shaw-Williams, he said of Christie:

“This whole thing is rooted in Agatha Christie’s love… she’s been innovating with every new book she’s written, she’s finding new ways to approach the genre, she’s putting in place. the problem is that if you did them today, people would say, ‘That’s very subversive, it’s subversive of the genre.’ And she did it every time. So I’m just trying to perfect my path to doing something like that.”

Not only is she out of style in terms of style, but her fingers also have a pulse. We think a lot of literature is period pieces, but they were really contemporary stories at the time. This is true of Agatha Christie and Poirot. She was writing about life at the time. Johnson’s aim with his Benoit Blanc stories mimics that mentality, making them firmly rooted in the here and now, said during the press conference:

“If Agatha Christie were to write right now, she would be writing about tech billionaires and [types of] figure. She’s not writing period pieces, she’s writing precisely for her time, and all the things we think about mystery killers are people in society… she really knows. “

That’s how you continue to franchise. It is not an endless parade of arrangements and teasing. Each film should have its own sociopolitical and ideological concerns to explore. If Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig keep it that way, they can make these things forever, and I hope they will.
