Warning: Major spoilers for glass onion consequences.
We’ve seen a rather odd collection of Netflix original movies in 2022 The gray man‘s poor dollar-to-quality ratio to Chris Hemsworth’s rarer, if divisive, role as a villain spider headto the delightfully conceived but questionably treated Wendel & Wildthis batch more or less proved that there’s still a little more work to be done in the fledgling territory of original films on streaming services.
If there was one exception that proved such a rule, it was Rian Johnson’s glass onion would it be. As a sequel to his critically acclaimed 2019 crime novel knife out, it had a reputation to live up to. As we all assumed, it was actually another home run from the files from Benoit Blanc that had fans old and new dreaming of where Daniel Craig’s adorable detective might end up next.
Like the burden of all art glass onionhas also been criticized, with most of them taking the form of perceived plot holes. One of those critiques pointed out that it made absolutely no sense for Miles to send one of his enigmatic invitations to Andi, given how he’d murdered her at the time.
However, as one r/FanTheories user was fond of pointing out, such a critique only makes sense if you ignore the film’s most salient points of cohesion — Miles Bron is a man of sickeningly palpable stupidity.
As the Redditor notes above, the timing of the film’s events, coupled with Miles’ utterly aloof negligence, could easily lead one to believe that he arranged the Glass Onion getaway long before Andi became too dangerous for him to live remain. Since he’s certainly a character who fills the archetype of the socially excluded billionaire who haphazardly throws money at any problem on the assumption that it will solve itself afterwards, it’s not hard to believe that he’s putting his glass onion mailing list in forgot the moment he withdrew it.
glass onion can be streamed on Netflix.
