Harlan Thrombey, a patriarch and renowned crime writer, was murdered at the celebration of his 85th birthday. A case for Inspector Blanc! "Domestic interiors, humane exteriors: faces in which time leaves its ornaments like money leaves its in the traditional furniture decoration. Writer/director Rian Johnson has a delight in micro-spatial structures, including timbre and dialect in the battle of words, which is contagious. From the pictorial solidity he sketches a mild form of detective story as social reflection. (Dr Robnik)
