As you may or may not know, I am a connoisseur of foods based on movies. When a film gets a tie-in menu at some fast casual restaurant, I go and eat the whole thing and try my best not to die. I’ve survived the Fantastic Four Denny’s menu and The Batman calzony from Little Caesar’s and the Independence Day: Resurgence Denny’s menu and the IHOP The Grinch menu and all the food in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Johnny Rockets Allegiant menu. I don’t know why I do this. I guess I just really hate myself and this is how I express that?

Whodunits consistently keep you on the edge of your seat through their mystery and engagement. Their serious tone can be closely connected with films during the noir period.

Knives Out is an interesting case because it defeats most norms of the whodunit genre.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is a product of its hyper-specific time. Following the success of his 2019 whodunnit hit Knives Out, writer/director Rian Johnson struck big with Netflix. The streaming giant paid $469 million practically as a commission for two more movies starring Daniel Craig as the “last of the gentlemen sleuths” Benoit Blanc. This deal went into place in March of 2021, a year after the COVID-19 pandemic kicked off. Hot off the heels of a dozen or so national and global events of every variety forcing many across the U.S. to question our systems and biases (for reference, see: March 2020 – January 2021), Johnson would have sat down at his laptop with a lot of thoughts and feelings to draw inspiration from. Knives Out’s use of the Trump Administration’s deportation policies to raise the personal stakes and its allusion to the rise of white supremacy in America could be written comfortably. It wasn’t a risk to assume that these unfortunate systems and developments would continue through late 2020 at the earliest. Glass Onion, however, was to be born out of the sharp, broken shards of a disrupted America…and it shows.
