Rian Johnson outdoes herself with a hilarious new Benoit Blanc Whodunit [TIFF]

“Glass Onion” begins by introducing us to our new cast of characters/suspects. There’s the famous Senate candidate Claire (Kathryn Hahn); the incredibly cryptic model turned fashion designer Birdie Jay (Kate Hudson) and her assistant Peg (Jessica Henwick); Duke (Dave Bautista), a men’s rights activist with a huge online following; Duke Whiskey’s girlfriend (Madelyn Cline); and Lionel (Leslie Odom Jr.), a scientist working for a multi-billion dollar technology company. This tech company is owned by billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton), who has connections to all these characters. And then there’s Andi (Janelle Monáe), Miles’ former business partner, whose affair with Miles leads to a horrific lawsuit.

All of these characters are invited to Miles’ private island for a weekend getaway. This is what he does with this group of friends every year, and this year, he wants to throw a murder mystery party. And who better to invite with Benoit Blanc? Johnson edited the film firmly in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Blanc, who was sheltering in place (remember when we did that?) became restless. He needs a case, and he jumps at the chance to go to Mile’s island, even if it’s a fake murder.

You can guess where this is going: fake murder turned real. But who was hit, and how, I won’t say. The fun of “Glass Onion” involves plot twists and shocking yet hilarious revelations that Johnson repeatedly throws at us at breakneck speed. Each scene is packed with sharp intelligence coupled with a truly intriguing mystery. Like Blanc, we’re getting the idea to solve this mystery.
