    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The Menu is one of the better absurdist Hollywood films in recent memory. It is a much, more mature critique of high society than I got from Glass Onion. I admire Rian Johnson but if I'm being honest, he doesn't quite nail biting critique whenever he makes stories about overprivileged people.
