Yeah Johnson confirmed the queer Blanc a few months ago.

A particular scene in the sequel, seen by Insider, indicates that Blanc is living with a man. When asked during a press conference at the London Film Festival, whether this means the character is queer, Johnson replied: "Yes, he obviously is."

Johnson added, referring to the actor who cameos as Blanc's lover: "And there's nobody in the world I can imagine in bringing me more joy for Benoit Blanc to be with."

Rewatched Knives Out last night and Glass Onion tonight with the family; in the latter case I was the only one who had seen it already, and it passed the same test that Knives Out did for me in that the beats and moments, now that you know to look for them, all still land just right. And both films are heightened reality character types a-plenty; that’s why they land, and little surprise the ‘real’ lead in both films, carefully hidden by the marketing, is someone who comes across as an actual person who could exist (though admittedly in GO’s case we don’t get to know that person as thoroughly due to the plot mechanics, an unavoidable weakness in comparison).

I have to add this as well: there’s a certain moment I can’t discuss in GO without spoiling but let’s just say my entire family absolutely loved it because there’s someone in my family history who was saved from death in an incredibly similar circumstance. Best private unplanned in joke ever.

Good piece on the artwork in the movie https://news.artnet.com/art-world/glass-onion-art-collection-production-design-2233174 I thought that the Rothko looked a bit odd.

Anyone know who did the eskimo painting with multiple ice holes? Thought it may be Miguel Calderon but seems not.

the Blanc bathing suit (and the "DONG"s) seem like Evil Under the Sun references and also good Last of Sheila vibes

haven't seen this yet so I'm trying to avoid the Ben Shapiro thread but LMAO at him complaining about the movie's "misdirection". like have you ever seen a movie before dude

Helen had her sister's diaries with her and in her room didn't she. I think she mentioned going through them. Definitely had had one in her jacket pocket so not going to be around for any further perusal.

(I think I liked this even more than the first one, certainly more over-the top with the ending)

"It's a dangerous thing to mistake speaking without thought for speaking the truth" was an all time zing

And her reaction too, deciding to take it as a compliment.

I don't know if we're talking about the same thing, but my wife's uncle got in a motorcycle accident once where it's possible the only thing that saved his leg, or at least saved it from serious damage, was the phone in his pocket, which worked as a buffer when he slid across the street. The phone was iirc shaved down in half by the friction.

Pretty much everything was smoking by the end innit.

Which is a payoff to the no-smoking garden! At first it comes off as some stupid rich tech guy affectation, but then it's revealed there's a reason there's no smoking allowed, lol.

i thought parts of this were pretty cringey, as the kids say. It's alright I guess.

I havent seen anyone mention it yet but the vert start where they were all invited as his "closest circle of friends" to a private island to "be normal" was a clear swipe at Kim K.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 00:49 (five months ago) link

Oh! And Benoit playing "Among Us" in the bath haha that one only just occured to me.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 00:51 (five months ago) link

i disliked the breaking glass climax a great deal. happy to see the mona lisa consumed though

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 00:52 (five months ago) link

Benoit getting even more outraged as he realizes the "only idea with panache" was actually stolen from him was A+++, so many good little bits throughout this

"my therapist says this is a toxic relationship"

sleeve, Tuesday, 27 December 2022 00:56 (five months ago) link

Was there any point to the painting's seurity screen going up and down constantly? (other than it being quite funny).

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 00:59 (five months ago) link

Rian Johnson is just online (the recurrence of "pancaked" is an I Think You Should Leave reference, i bet) and just funny enough to give these movies some teeth. While Star Trek and other franchises kissed Musk's ass (and even Herzog treated him seriously in one of his docs), Johnson is apparently one of the few people in Hollywood who realized he's an idiot, with no "but my Tesla" equivocation, full stop. That combined with how truly infectious Craig and Monae's enthusiasm is made this legitimately entertaining.

Chris L, Tuesday, 27 December 2022 01:31 (five months ago) link

I was loudly outraged by all the malapropisms throughout the movie, so it was a nice payoff when that unexpectedly delivered

sleeve, Tuesday, 27 December 2022 01:33 (five months ago) link

xxp I think being funny is enough, but it's possibly also there to give us a fair shot at realising what's going to happen just before it does, that it's not "oh yeah the Mona Lisa, they mentioned that an hour ago"

Not sure I'd be even that generous, but thank you. Was waiting for at least one no before registering a second one.

The whole show of how to override the screen was a setup for the climax.

Busting something that everyone wants broken: All that glass sitting on pillars just waiting to be smashed. Breaking the thing that nobody wants you to break: Mona Lisa.

(Not counting you cynical fucks who DO want the Mona Lisa to go up in flames.)

Hideous Lump, Tuesday, 27 December 2022 03:22 (five months ago) link

I cackled when Birdy’s assistant was confronting her about the statement and had to read the incriminating email from the secret phone; also, “it was an HOMAGE to Beyoncé but they did NOT take it that way” basically Kate Hudson was a nonstop delight

the treatment of the guitar the song that gives the title was written on might strike some as sacrilegious like.

That was “Blackbird” he played on the beach.

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 14:23 (five months ago) link

i liked this movie too (daniel craig is so so funny) but when people say "they should put out a new knives out every year!" to me that's just evidence that people are starving for studios to go back to regularly releasing comedies

na (NA), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 17:08 (five months ago) link

anyways the whole cast is pretty great but almost all of my favorite moments were craig - him eating a spicy tamale and exclaiming "halle berry!," the striped bathing suit, blanc being characterized as literally being addicted to solving mysteries, his consternation at the stupidity of the mystery. my daughter got clue for xmas and as we were playing it all i could think about was blanc complaining about it being a stupid game

na (NA), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 17:11 (five months ago) link

We play Clue with the kids too and we all cracked up when he trashed it.

Also for just well made, well cast, well written, well produced (more or less) original entertainments in general. Does "Glass Onion" even really classify as a sequel?

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 27 December 2022 17:24 (five months ago) link

yes

na (NA), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 17:41 (five months ago) link

Yeah. Why wouldn't it be? If Johnson makes more, it'll be a series.

Malevolent Arugula (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 17:46 (five months ago) link

He's got one more on the Netflix contract and both he and Craig said they'll be happy to keep doing more if there's interest.

Worth remembering that Johnson's episodic mystery TV series with Natasha Lyonne debuts next month -- seems like he's happily playing around more with the general forms.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 27 December 2022 17:56 (five months ago) link

*search DuckDuckGo for Johnson's episodic mystery TV series with Natasha Lyonne*

corrs unplugged, Tuesday, 27 December 2022 18:02 (five months ago) link

I think the topicality of the characters is what kept me from liking this more than I did. as someone who spends too much time on twitter as it is, I'm already incredibly tired of the actual sorts of people this is lampooning, and I didn't feel like the satire cut quite deep enough to make up for me having to watch them for 2 hours. but I didn't watch this under ideal conditions; it was at home, my family has a short attention span, people got up and disappeared for up to 40 minutes with the movie paused twice, and it took 4 hours to finish.

I? not I! He! He! HIM! (akm), Tuesday, 27 December 2022 18:14 (five months ago) link

oof yeah... if any type of movie can survive that, it's not this one.
