Quick Review Of Knives Out

Movie - Knives Out

Let’s get this out of the way right at the start: go see this movie. Knives Out is fun and worth the time. It’s an old-fashioned mystery.

As I was reading this book, I kept thinking about Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, which I read, frankly, another lifetime ago. There is a fairy tale aspect to the way this book is presented that allows Jack McDaniel to talk about serious issues without coming across as moralizing. Purple just wants us all to take a step back and consider that all the things we find to be most important are actually fabricated constructs that should be treated with skepticism instead of veneration. ...
