Rian Johnson's new movie "Knives Out" takes aim at conservatives
Has 100% on RT.

quote:

"KNIVES OUT is a fun 'f*** you' to rich white Trump voters, wrapped in a crafty Agatha Christie package. VERY pro-immigration. And none of this is subtle. Enjoy it in a crowd," said film critic Tomris Laffly.



quote:

"Congrats to [Rian Johnson] for writing the most telenovela of films. KNIVES OUT is a total blast and a total takedown of privilege, gringos, and perceptions through a genre that's very missed," said film critic Yolanda Machado.



quote:

"KNIVES OUT is a ton of fun: a slippery, stylised murder mystery, littered with zingers, that also operates as a satire of Trump's America. I also enjoyed the Baby Driver reference," said Nick de Semlyen of Empire Magazine.



quote:

"KNIVES OUT is a total delight from start to finish. It's also a scathing indictment of American greed in the Trump era. I'll have more on that when the movie opens in November," said Matt Goldberg of Collider.


quote:

"One of many things I love about Knives Out — it takes DIRECT aim at the MAGA crowd," said Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com.



quote:

"Knives Out" is a whodunnit story of the Agatha Christie-style in which several members of a rich white family seek to uncover the mystery behind their patriarch's death. The film also stars vocal anti-Trump actors Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Michael Shannon among others. David Ehrlich of IndieWire referred to it as a "sharp takedown of white entitlement" and even described one of the characters as a "mini Ben Shapiro."



quote:

Linda (Jamie Lee Curtis) built her own business from the ground up — she only needed a $1,000,000 loan from her daddy to do it. Joni (Toni Collette) is basically a glorified Instagram influencer, and that’s probably working out great. Linda’s husband Richard (Don Johnson) is cheating on her. Even worse: He’s a Trump supporter. Walt’s teenage son Jacob (Jaeden Martell) may be the only other self-identified Republican in the family, but he’s basically a mini Ben Shapiro. And it’s not like the rest of the family are doing all that much to separate themselves from MAGA politics. They tell Marta that she’s 'part of the family,' but when it comes to splitting up Harlan’s will, well, things are going to get complicated. Let’s just say that the 'I would have voted for Obama for a third term' energy is strong with this crowd, every single member of which feels like they deserve what’s coming to them. And do they — they just don’t know what that is yet.

Wow hardly ever see that

And we are back to the “rich white” cliche?

I thought we were going with “rural poor white trash”

So hard to keep up

Quite the echo chamber when considering the actors, producers and movie “critics” lauding the film.

Was this intended or is this the spin from leftist reviewers.

Rich, cheating, greedy, annoying....sounds like a bunch of progressives to me.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Don Johnson? Damn, they're raising the Hollywood dead with this casting to indict American greed.

Ugh, there's no war on white people.

Here's a great film about waging war on white people.

It takes an enormous level of douchebaggery and frickery to destroy one of the most beloved stories in history (Star Wars) but Rian Johnson is a very rare douchebag and frickup.

One of the more puzzling ascensions in Hollywood. He’s not good at all, then gets thrown the keys to Star Wars.

We only like rich white people when they vote for OUR candidate. These people are so transparently pathetic.

The trailers looks good, to me, at least. For whatever that's worth.

Isn’t Hollywood rich and white? I’m confused
