The classic substance of the Conqueror lies in the way detective Benoit Blanc explores, instead of using modern business with high accuracy of the 21st century, he likes to talk to witnesses, judge and use magnifying glass.

One of the modern elements of the modern-day “comedy” is the use of politics to satirize, with the tip of the nose pointing nowhere other than the US president. Decisions about immigrants, political factions and the habit of “slashing the wind” about being a self-made billionaire have been made not sarcastic. In interviews, Rian Johnson did not hide this and considered it a pastime for director life. In addition, the message of the immigrant’s kindness and kindness through the image of Marta (Ana de Armas) and the metaphor of wealthy white men also contributed. the innovation of the classic detective genre.
