Nocturnal Animals

Nocturnal Animals, Tom Ford’s gripping and devastating meta-textual mystery, left me heavy at heart. I am enamoured by impenitently bleak narratives but Ford manages to mesh character and tone in a queasy union that left some dissonance lingering within by the time the resolution tapped me on the shoulder.

Nocturnal Animals (2016) Review

Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals is a gallery of broken imagery, broken sequences, and ultimately broken hearts. At times, its odd structure gets away from it, and it feels as though the film comes to the brink of falling to pieces. But it’s a testament to some astounding performances and an intricate third act that this thriller leaves its mark well after the credits have rolled.
