Glass Onion director Rian Johnson praised for powerful Daniel Craig line
| Last updated
Viewers are flooding to social media to applaud Glass Onion director Rian Johnson for a 'powerful' line spoken by Daniel Craig.
However, one line in particular said by central figure Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) has gained significant attention.
And Johnson has since received an outpouring of praise for his work on the film and in aiding Craig's deliverance of the now-iconic line.
Be warned, spoilers ahead. Although, if you haven't prioritised watching the sequel then you have no one to blame but yourself.
In Glass Onion, Detective Blanc is invited to go to tech billionaire Miles Bron's (Ed Norton) private Greek island to participate in a murder mystery game when Helen Brand (Janelle Monáe) comes knocking at his door after her twin sister, Cassandra a.k.a. Andi (Janelle Monáe again) seemingly commits suicide.
Sat around with several of Bron's friends, Detective Blanc asks the group how they all first got to know one another.
Andi (or really Helen, but that's found out later on in the film) jumps in to accuse the group of only staying together because they each rely on Bron's financial funding - his 'golden t**ties' as it were.
After 'Andi' storms off, Birdie Jay (Kate Hudson) declares: "Like Miles said, I’m a truth-teller. Some people can’t handle it."
Blanc responds: "It’s a dangerous thing to mistake speaking without thought for speaking the truth."
Seconds after hearing the line uttered, many viewers flocked to Twitter to declare it the most 'powerful' line of the whole film.
One said: "Daniel Craig has the best line in #GlassOnion.@rianjohnson astutely hits on a sentiment that I wish more people would remember before carelessly speaking."
Another commented: "A few people burst into applause at this line during my screening last week."
"I want this tattooed on my forehead," a third said.
A final resolved: "Best quote of 2022."
Many users have also suggested the line is a dig at Twitter owner and magnate Elon Musk.
One said: "Watched GLASS ONION again and I think it’s beautiful that Rian Johnson was like 'I wonder if my class critique was a bit too subtle last time, let’s just dedicate 2.5 hours to pointing and laughing at Elon Musk, the world’s number one dumbass b**ch'."
However, one user resolved: "A lot of people are like how did Rian Johnson accurately predict how timely Glass Onion would be for Twitter, and the answer is he didn't. He just accurately understands human nature. 90 percent of prophecy is just understanding people."
