A few critics comments I thought were unique . . .

“Nocturnal Animals” is, I think, a beautiful mess, but I might have to watch it again to be sure.” Moira MacDonald (Seattle Times)

“Trying to weigh this spellbinding film’s multifaceted carnage is a mesmerizing experience that requires as much soul-searching as detective work.”

“A chilling but at the same time healing story that elegantly shows the power of creation to sublimate our darkest desires.” Fausto Ponce

    • It’s very disturbing. During watching it set off triggers & fears . that was the fictional section being read by the lead character . played by Amy Adams . i wouldn’t recommend for the faint at heart .
      i watch two films this past week . one i wanted to see & it freaked the hell out of me . and one i didn’t want to see . but as a film critic for an online newspaper i felt it was a must see though i felt it was going to be a disaster . the same way it was a disaster when Faye Dunaway announced (thanks to Shirley McClain’s brother Warren Beatty . he copped out . needed to man up & tell someone they gave him the wrong envelop . La La Land didn’t win . Moonlight did . it’s fantastic . like a poem unfolding . as for LLL . it sucked . i felt & knew it was going to suck . such a disappointment . it shouldn’t have won for best song . best director . or best actress . i wanted the French actor in Belle to win . i know her name but it has slipped my mind . now Elle is supposed to be disturbing but she also gets her revenge . a good revenge film is hard to find . if it’s good . how delicious . jodie foster did one ‘Brave One’ . may have an ‘s’ .

      so if you have the courage ‘Nocturnal Animals’ is a good film .maybe even great . Tom Ford directed it . he tends to go sideways . but a great director.
