Glass Onion: A Knifes Out Mystery Title, Why Rian Johnson Regrets It?

Rian Johnson, who directed Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, reveals why he regrets the movie’s name. In the Netflix movie, Daniel Craig plays the investigator Benoit Blanc again as he delves into yet another bizarre and intriguing murder investigation. The themes of corruptive money, morality, privilege, and greed are wonderfully echoed in Johnson’s earlier murder mystery film, Knives Out from 2019. Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery solely features Blanc’s return. For these reasons and because of the title, which alludes to its predecessor, the movie is a direct sequel to Knives Out.

The title “Glass Onion,” which alludes to the 1968 Beatles song of the same name, is stated throughout the movie. Johnson says in an interview with The Atlantic that he wishes the title of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery didn’t include the second half because he would have like for the movie to stand on its own rather than merely be a sequel.

The filmmaker acknowledges that Glass Onion is “the next in the series,” but he adds that he disagrees with the importance placed on “serialised narrative” since he prefers to think of the movies as “self-contained” works, likening them to books in a series. Below, you can see Screen Rant’s video deconstruction of 20 simple-to-miss clues from Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and read Johnson’s whole quote:

“I’ve tried hard to make them self-contained. Honestly, I’m pissed off that we have A Knives Out Mystery in the title. I want it to just be called Glass Onion. I get it, and I want everyone who liked the first movie to know this is next in the series, but also, the whole appeal to me is it’s a new novel off the shelf every time. But there’s a gravity of a thousand suns toward serialized storytelling.”

Glass onion: A Knives Out Mystery, is Self-Sufficient:

In spite of the title, which suggests that Glass Onion is truly a sequel to Knives Out, the film can stand alone as a stand-alone work, proving that Johnson’s aims were fulfilled. Although Blanc’s character is affected by his links to the previous movie and how viewers see him, these connections are not required for viewers to appreciate the sequel in its current form. Glass Onion continues the concepts of Knives Out, which are described above, while developing a new narrative with a wholly different premise, interesting setting, and updated cast of humorous and sarcastic characters.

Knives Out was greatly influenced by Agatha Christie, according to Johnson, with Blanc playing the role of a contemporary Hercule Poirot. Blanc fulfils the same purpose in Knives Out and Glass Onion as Poirot does throughout Christie’s series of mystery books. Johnson’s aims for the series become crystal evident when comparing his movies to Christie’s books since a reader may pick up any of Christie’s mysteries and have a great reading experience without having to read the other books, though they may enhance the experience.

Will a Third Knives Out mystery Emerge?

Knives Out is back for another episode. The filmmaker recently hinted at a fourth film, with Craig’s return to his detective role already confirmed as part of the Netflix arrangement with Johnson. Since the renowned mystery author has authored 33 novels and many other works centred on Poirot, it is more probable that knives out companion films would follow glass onion given Johnson’s love in Christie’s writings. whereas none else Knives Out Mystery: Glass Onion The characters will probably return to the series, maybe in a cameo role. 3.
