‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ Review: A Fun, Exciting Whodunnit That Improves Upon the Original in Every Way

This review is part of my coverage of TIFF ’22, which held Glass Onion’s world premiere.

Writer/Director Rian Johnson perfected the whodunnit mystery genre in Knives Out, one of my favourite films of 2019. While it could have very easily been a rehash of the first film, Glass Onion once again breathes new life into this genre with a completely new cast, a new mystery to solve, and a familiar central character whose exciting return appears to be building him up as the modern-day Sherlock Holmes.
