The One ‘Glass Onion’ Moment That Was Just Too Real

This weekend the highly anticipated sequel to Knives Out, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, was released to Netflix after a few weeks at the box office. Like the first entry to Detective Benoit Blanc’s work history, this story provided a mystery alongside sharp critiques of class, gender, and race. There are many moments (especially if you follow political discourse) that can accidentally take the viewer out of the movie because writer/director Rian Johnson went there. (In some ways more than the first film because there’s no benevolent Harlan Thrombey.) However, one moment in particular was too much for me because of one character’s depiction of the pervasive myth in defense of the ultra-wealthy.
