What a terrific film, easily Rian’s most impressive work yet. Best I’ve seen all year too, including Parasite.

My biggest compliment to this film is that some mysteries love to whip twists out based on information the film never gave you, and act like it is genius they kept shit hidden from you. I really appreciate Rian giving you the pieces to the puzzle. He didn't withhold just to make himself feel smart.
You can say Steven Moffat

But yeah, a lot of mysteries really try to keep their big reveal as secretive as possible, which often involves withholding information or making the murder method so convoluted that it’s confusing and not engaging. I appreciate the fact that this movie doesn’t do that, and I don’t consider it a flaw that the identity of the killer is fairly obvious. I think figuring out twists ahead of time because the movie doesn’t withhold information makes it more fun

I absolutely loved this. It was one of my favorites of the year. It has so many great little details, that I can’t wait to watch it again.
