It all starts with a game. Miles Bron (Edward Norton) invites his group of friends for a weekend on his private island in Greece. Senate candidate Claire Debella (Kathryn Hann); Lionel Toussaint (Leslie Odom Jr.), a scientist who works for Miles; Duke Cody (Dave Bautista), youtube star and his girlfriend Whiskey (Madelyn Cline); Birdie Jay (Kate Hudson), a former supermodel and current stylist and her assistant Peg (Jessica Henwick); Cassanda Brand (Janelle Monáe), Miles’ former associate. The main entertainment is the fake murder of Miles which the group had to solve. But what was supposed to be a fun Cluedo game turns into reality, and this is where Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) enters the scene, mysteriously invited to the annual meeting.

Looking Through a lass Onionsang the Beatles, a lyric deliberately created to confuse fans. And that’s what it does Rian Johnson in glass onion, disorienting the viewer by taking him off track every time he thinks he has taken the right path. Johnson’s script is brilliant, full of twists and flashbacks but, above all, once again, very careful to calibrate the right information about the characters. If in Dinner with crimeBlanc remains “hidden” waiting to enter the scene as a deus ex machina to resolve the situation, in glass onion, the director and screenwriter, decides to make it more protagonist.

Not only a parody of a classic thriller but also a social critique. Dinner with crime took a political turn pointing the finger at the current situation with stars and stripes, immigration. glass onion changes register, passing from political to social criticism. How Parasites and the most recent Triangle of Sadness And The Menua strong reflection is made on the privileges and pettiness of the “privileged” classes, on the hypocrisies and the lack of morals when power, success and money come into play.

From a scenographic point of view there is something extra. The scenography is curated by the Oscar winner Rick Heinrichs (The Mystery of Sleepy Hollow), who had already collaborated with Johnson in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. All set in a luxurious villa (a wink to Murder on the Nile? Probably yes), with attention to the smallest details, excessive and full of details above the lines, as if to highlight the personality of Miles Bron, with a huge onion-shaped glass dome that recalls the title of the film.
