Where: In theatres, Netflix
When: In theatres, Wed., Nov. 23, one week; Netflix, Fri., Dec. 23
Genre: Whodunit mystery
Why you should watch: Like Peter Sellers and Steve Martin as Inspector Clouseau or Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot, having a sleuth with a slightly over-the-top accent helming a mystery seems key to achieving a playfulness so essential to a winning whodunit formula. And the Knives Out gang has done that as Daniel Craig’s drawling detective Benoit Blanc leads a character-rich mystery that’s as fun as the original, with an equally entertaining cast of suspicious characters.
