The Quick Explanation
Glass Onion is a critique of reckless power and those who enable it. Our initial perception of Miles Bron is that he’s a genius who has earned his importance. By the end of the film, we see how fake that is. The only reason Miles has power is because others enable him for their own benefit (and misery). If these cronies would just be honest and do the right thing, people like Miles couldn’t thrive. Glass Onion wants to prod viewers into asking “Who in the real world is like Miles, a glass onion, seemingly layered but actually completely transparent and empty? And who needs to be honest about it?” It’s a film that turns the idea of accountability into something necessary and cathartic.
