    One of the great films of 2016!

    |
    Posted .

    Directed by Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent fashion designer Tom Ford (and adapted by Ford from Austin Wright's 1993 novel, Tony and Susan), this is a multi-layered 'story within a story' that will disturb viewers while cementing them to their seats. The main framing narrative follows a wealthy art gallery owner named Susan (Amy Adams at her least bubbly) whose second marriage is falling apart as apathy and depression consume her boring life. The actual story begins when she receives a book manuscript by her ex-husband (Jake Gyllenhaal) whom she had left 19 years earlier, a novel pinned with a note asking for her to provide feedback. As she reads, the film takes us directly into the novel itself which turns out to be a violent neo-noir thriller revolving around a man (also Gyllenhaal) whose vacation with his family has turned deadly and has driven him to hire a detective (played by Michael Shannon in arguably the finest performance of his career to date) as his world slips into inexorable nightmare. The film cleverly mixes the two narratives as Adams (along with the audience) attempts to piece together parallels between the fictional novel and her own life. In each of the two narratives director Ford exhibits a perfect merging of style with theme: Its framing story displays the polished visual opulence of the director's background in fashion design with a deliberately measured pacing in its editing; in contrast, the inner narrative embraces the sordid, grimy visual ugliness of an rough-hewn pulp novel while employing a more forceful rhythm in the editing. The effect is as if a stately Bruckner symphonic movement were invaded by polytonal tone clusters from a Charles Ives piece. Director Ford has said, "[a film] can be entertaining, but if you leave the theater and it doesn't stay with you, doesn't haunt you, doesn't challenge you, then it's not successful." "Nocturnal Animals" succeeds by these standards beyond his wildest dreams. When I first saw it, I left the theater staggering as though hit by a brickbat. Since then it has stayed in my mind and continues to haunt me, even as I write this review now.

    TWISTED ANIMALS FOR SURE!

    Owned for more than 2 years when reviewed.

    This is a really twisted movie! I love the cast and saw this in the theatres so I was excited to add the movie to my collection, Jake Gyllenhaal is truly excellent in this very dark and disturbing movie that is really thought provoking and equally upsetting at the same time! NOT a kids movie but a thriller for adults for sure! Amy Adams is striking in this as well. VERY well cast --- and the director, TOM FORD - the fashion designer, did a fine job keeping you guessing. It should have won an Oscar in my opinion! I hope he makes more movies - im a fan!

    Tense Thriller

    |
    Posted .

    Movie was brilliantly shot by director Tom Ford and acting was very good. Film is basically two stories in one that focuses on one of the characters reading a novel her Ex wrote about himself. Movie is dark and gritty at times, but keeps you guessing. Can't give away much about the ending, but I can say that MOST people don't understand the ending because they didn't pay attention to the film. There is a line in the movie where she tells him "he shouldn't write stories about himself", which explains the ending if you pay enough attention. The end of his novel was predetermined. Sometimes watching a movie requires a little participation on the viewers part to pick up the little details. This isn't some action flick full of mindless explosions and car chases. Ha! Ha!

    NOTHING LESS A SURPRISE YOU CANNOT FORGET!

    Posted .

    NOCTURNAL ANIMALS is never going to be a film that one can easily view without disgust, horror and puzzlement. It's one of the most unique pieces of storytelling this individual has every seen in cinema. After my initial shock at scenes of disturbing violence and disgust, I settled into being on the edge of my seat to find out just how the story ends. The end is exactly as it should be. Is it revenge, getting back, or just a brilliantly creative way of telling someone you really loved just how much you really loved them? You can make up your mind when you see it. I highly recommend that you see this remarkable piece of suspenseful drama.

    Good Movie

    Posted .

    I am a fan of Amy Adams. As she is an extremely great actress of many roles & characters. I prefer making purchases at best buy as it is an easy process, any issues ( none ) they are extremely easy to deal with. Plus bonus rewards on something I was gonna buy anyways, might as well purchase at best buy. Buy movie; Dont want to give away details. I hate too many previews or reviews that give away the movie. So as far as the movie itself: Great acting, Good story; different.

    Another good Amy Adams

    |
    Posted .

    this was an interesting movie with Amy Adams again showing why she is one of the best actor of the day. There is something about her that she dominates the screen in some movies. In this movie, the flash backs were really frightening, and in some cases, it wasn't clear if it was the present or just a story that she was reading. Maybe not a commercial success but a good little movie that is better than most movies coming out now.

    Good movie although not for every

    It is a very stylistic and dark movie. I thought it was a very intresting and engaging film. Performances were great. It is a little more on a film noir side so if that is not your thing this movie might not resonate with you. However I would still give it a go.

    Can' lose with Amy Adams

    |
    Posted .

    This was a surprising very good movie. Amy Adams at her best in a scary movie that was a surprise. Even Jake Gyllenhall was good in this movie and carried his own weight. Flash backs were so good that it was hard to know if they were real time or in the past. Ending was up in the air so you really did not know how the present or past worked out, but still worth watching.

    CREEPY EXCELLENCE

    |
    Posted .

    WOW - this movie is amazing! Creepy, tantalizing, sexy, scary --- it had it all! NO SPOILERS I promise - but this film will challenge your brain to keep up with the story! Jake Gyllenhall is amazing in this, I'm sad he didn't get an Oscar nom. This is TOM FORDS 2nd movie, his attention to detail is stunning! I cant wait to see what he comes up with next! DEFINATELY not for kids -- but this is an EXCELLENT adult film. The imagery is just beautiful, and the film editing is reminiscent of Hitchcock! A classic thriller for our time! A+

    Twisty Noir Thriller

    |
    Posted .

    A deep thinking thriller. Don't let the opening scene deter you from watching the rest. A woman whose life is unhappy gets a manuscript from her ex. As she reads it, we are transported to its world not knowing if it's based on their former life together or fiction. Audio/video quality is excellent and extras are fine. Go in with an open mind and enjoy.

    Mystery within a mystery

    |
    Posted .

    In a slow reveal, apparent parallel storylines coalesce into a parable of hope. lost and reconciliation until the final denouement. Ms. Amy Adams is chilling in her portrayal of Susan whose pass actions have led to her icy demeanor. Equally chilling and a revelation is the performance of Mr. Aaron Taylor-Johnson in his portrayal of evil incarnate.

    A Near Perfect Film

    |
    Posted .

    This film is not only a great one, it has hidden elements to it that only someone who is truly immersed will see. Amy Adams is an art-gallery owner that receives an unpublished book dedicated to her from her ex husband. She opens and begins to read the book and the movie and story unfold as she reads it. As the film progresses you see flashbacks of her past with her ex husband and what happened to their relationship. This romantic thriller was one of my personal favorites of 2016, I highly recommend it!

    Amy Adams is great once again but Jake Gyllenhaal is even better. A violent film with a well deserved retaliation ending.

    Tom Ford needs to make more movies.

    |
    Posted .

    Tom Ford knows how to make a good movie. This is one of the most aesthetically unique films I've seen in a long time. The story is also riveting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you like David Lynch films this film is definitely for you. Very good thriller that is intelligent, creepy, dark, and unsettling. Great performances from the entire cast with a director that is extremely talented.

    Nocturnal Viewing!

    |
    Posted .

    Nocturnal Animals is a dark, twisted and enthralling thriller. Written and directed by fashion designer turned filmmaker, Tom Ford, the film engages it's audience with tension, fright and unrest. The lead performances are curiously dark and emotional, while the cinematography effectively balances slick elegance and saturated grit. Nocturnal Animals will leave it's grip on you long after watching it. Highly recommended!

    Beautifully Shot Thriller

    |
    Posted .

    Tom Ford's second movie is a testament to his talents and asthetic. It also goes to prove that his first directorial effort was not a fluke. It's drastically different in tone from "A Single Man", but they are both beautifully shot, wholly engrossing and unique cinematic experiences.

    More Hits Than Misses But Challenging

    Posted .

    This movie can be difficult to watch as the pace sometimes drags a little but the high points of good acting and excellent plot development offset some difficult parts of the movie to watch. Tom Ford did an excellent job but he also overcomplicated things sometimes in this movie.

    this movie blew me away

    The FANTASTIC Tom Ford has done it again! His first movie is one of my favorites and now I have another to add to that very small pile! The script was flawless, the casting and acting nothing short of genius, loved all the little nuances that Tom throws in there for intrigue and balance, he is too good a designer to give that up but he is too GREAT a film maker not to consider it!!

    This film doesn't exactly keep you on the edge of your seat, but the acting is great and the story line is not hard to follow (pause the movie if you leave the room, though). I really hoped for an edge-of-your-seat thriller, but this film is still worth a watch.
