Review: The Clumsy Anti-Muskism of Glass Onion
Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is back. The eccentric detective and his endearing, exaggerated Southern accent have a new case to solve in Glass Onion, the sequel to 2019’s beloved whodunit Knives Out.
The mystery unfolds in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing Blanc to a private island owned by the tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton). Bron is clearly a broad—sometimes very broad—caricature of Elon Musk, and he’s not alone: A men’s rights YouTuber played by Dave Bautista is channeling Joe Rogan, or perhaps the accused sex trafficker Andrew Tate. A bought-and-paid-for Democratic politician (Kathryn Hahn), a clueless fashion influencer (Kate Hudson), an amoral scientist (Leslie Odom Jr.), and a rival tech mogul (Janelle Monáe) round out the cast of characters/list of suspects.
