Why is It Called Glass Onion?
According to Netflix fan site Tudum, the title is a reference to the 1968 Beatles song Glass Onion. The term “glass” came to director Rian Johnson while brainstorming “an overwrought metaphor” for Craig’s detective Blanc. With this in mind, he went to his music collection.
“I’ll be completely honest with you. I took out my iPhone and used the word glass to search my music library “Johnson stated. “The first thing that came to mind, because I’m a huge Beatles fan, is ‘Glass Onion.'”
