I really enjoyed the Glass Onion ("A Knives Out Mystery") movie.

I also really liked "The Pale Blue Eye", starring Christian Bale. Bale is a retired detective named Augustus Landor who is called in to solve a murder-mystery at the West Point military academy in 1830. One of the cadets Landor encounters is a young Edgar Allen Poe (Harry Melling).  I had to look it up... Poe really did attend West Point and serve in the US army. And Melling in this show bears an uncanny resemblance to the portraits of Poe I saw. Anyway, it was pretty good. I especially enjoyed the cinematography. It's a beautiful film to look at.

I watched an episode of Kaleidoscope, and it didn't really grab me.  It's a heist series, with the gimmick that you can apparently watch the episodes in any order. I think the episode I saw is called "yellow". Anyway, it stars Giancarlo Esposito as a man putting together a team for a huge heist.  Based on Esposito's reputation I had high hopes for this, but so far it just isn't very good.
