Tom Ford's second feature, Nocturnal Animals, is a movie within a movie, and while both are lushly attractive, full of precise light and deep reds, neither is very good.

Of course, it's all very symbolic -- with death, love, art, betrayal, and revenge seamlessly intersecting and crisscrossing on every level, resulting in two distinct tales about hollow, gut-wrenching ache.

A gorgeous, harrowing and occasionally bizarre meta-thriller that mixes multiple narrative threads together with beautiful visuals and a breathtaking score.

As it stands - it is thrilling, dark as molasses tale that leaves you shaken and stirred.

Nocturnal Animals wants to be provocative but its scattered parts all add up to something a bit silly.

In essence, you can follow along and give credit to Nocturnal Animals for doing something different, but it's still debatable if it did that thing well.

The major weakness of "Nocturnal Animals," which is constructed as a story within a story, is that the frame story is shallow and this is not sufficiently compensated for by the story within the frame.

One highbrow yet twisted tale of love and revenge with a loaded cast on their A-game

It reminded me of David Cronenberg's Maps To The Stars... but not as good and more frustrating.

Nocturnal Animals is, simply, flawless. There is no part of this film that could be changed or subtracted without damaging the rest of it, and there is nothing that needs to be added.

In the end, it's hard to draw any conclusions about the nature of these two stories other than ones that are unpleasant and unworthy of the effort.
