Philadelphia Film Critics Circle turns out for Knives Out


Edi Patterson in Knives Out

Rian Johnson's Knives Out is currently in the process of slaying the general moviegoing public, having already laid waste to critics when it premiered earlier this year at TIFF. Today, it deals its deadliest blow to date: a Best Film prize from the Philadelphia Film Critics Circle. Granted, this is only the third year of the Philly critics' existence as a group, but Knives Out's success here is an indication that voters are willing and ready to place the murder-mystery comedy atop their ballots. It's not all Bong Joon Ho and Martin Scorsese! Elsewhere here, there's a lot of support for Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, while Little Women continues to rally.
