Rian Johnson Glass onion is just a knotty whodunit Knives out fans have come to expect from the man who created both Benoit Blanc and badgers. Just as he did with the first film, Johnson delivers on the revelations, the lies, and the mystery seems like a no-brainer. The thing glides on, but it takes a lot of work to make it look that easy. We can only imagine what it felt like every time Johnson shared the script with someone, hoping they didn’t point out some inconsistency that caused the whole thing to fall apart. Fortunately, we don’t have to imagine. In:n for his chat Variety“Directors on Directors” series, Top Gun: Maverick: director Joseph Kosinski asked him what it was.

Kosinski. The plot Glass onion it’s a puzzle. Has anyone ever brought up a flaw in logic that requires you to reconsider?

Johnson: A hundred times a day, you’ll see an actor come up to you, and you’ll see that they have a question in their eyes. Every time that happens, it’s the most terrifying five seconds because you think they’re going to ask the question that reveals the inconsistency where this whole thing is revealed. Through the shooting Glass onion“There was one thing. I think Daniel caught it. It was mostly scary because of the thought that I know I can fix it, but oh, I missed something else. And Daniel would kind of lose faith in me and be like…

Kosinski. “He doesn’t know what he’s doing.”

Johnson: “He’s bleeding.” Yes.

As hard as it sounds to keep the logic of the movie in place, at least Johnson can work on the ground, where gravity isn’t constantly threatening to kill your stars and crew. Kosinski had to bear that burden, and he stayed 800 hours of footage. “We usually did two or three camera setups Top Gun:Kosinski said. “But there were days — air days — where we had 26 or 27 cameras. Which almost gave my editor, Eddie Hamilton, a nervous breakdown. I think at the end of the film we had 813 hours of footage that we had to split into two parts.”

Eight hundred and thirteen hours of footage sounds a lot worse than being convinced that Benoit Blanc won’t solve the mystery before production ends. Not that it’s a contest.
