See How They Run (2022, D: George) S: Rockwell, Ronan, Brody, Oyelowo, Wilson



In select US theaters starting on September 30th, 2022.

In the West End of 1950s London, plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.

Directed by: Tom George
Written by: Mark Chappell
Cast: Sam Rockwell, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, David Oyelowo, Ruth Wilson, Harris Dickinson, Shirley Henderson, Sian Clifford, Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, Reece Shearsmith, Charlie Cooper

Looks cute, Clue/Knives Out in a theater done with a dash of Wes Anderson style.

A mildly amusing but mostly inconsequential murder mystery that involves characters based on famous personalities like Agatha Christie (and her play The Mousetrap) and actor Richard Attenborough. There's a surfeit of suspects at play once the murder takes place, but the unraveling of the mystery isn't particularly compelling or thrilling. It's a wink-wink, tongue-in-cheek British comedy, but in a mostly conventional and understated manner -- not in a Monty Python-esque or Edgar Wright way. The movie works as a somewhat bland satire of the theater and cinema communities and of murder mysteries in general -- as it early on pokes fun at all the usual tropes you typically find in these type of productions. Rockwell mostly sleepwalks his way though the role of the jaded inspector on the case, but Saorise Ronan seems to be having a lot of fun as the eager but inexperienced inspector-in-training.

Just saw this. Almost managed to stay awake through the whole thing; nodded off in the last few mintues. The main characters were pretty boring and/or annoying; didn't care about any of them. At first it seemed like the movie wanted to be a comedy and then later a murder mystery but it failed at both and was just kind of meh.

Perfect description. I'd admire the movie more had it been made 50 years ago (which by the way, is only 1972 now).
