The movie has an all-star cast that includes Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, and Christopher Plummer. The movie tells the story of a wealthy patriarch’s death and the subsequent investigation, which reveals a web of family secrets and lies.
The release of the ‘Glass Onion’ commentary on Netflix is a treat for fans of the movie who want to learn more about its creation. It’s also a great way for aspiring filmmakers to gain insight into the process of making a hit movie. Johnson’s approach to the movie was to subvert audience expectations of the murder mystery genre, and this commentary sheds light on how he achieved that goal.
