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.
December 21, 2017
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
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Nocturnal Animals is a frantic fever dream of the ways we betray and disappoint ourselves and those we love.

Nocturnal Animals: A Cautionary Tale
October 17, 2017
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.
September 25, 2017
Despite the fulsomeness of Ford's cinematic reference points, one can't avoid the feeling that something crucial is still missing.
September 20, 2017
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.
September 20, 2017
Tom Ford has definitely brought his eye for art into this film, which was impeccably shot.

a deft, intelligent, and twisty rumination on relationships and the expectations that come with them.

September 12, 2017
For all the acting excellence on display in Nocturnal Animals, what mattered more was cracking the narrative Rubik's Cube invented by Wright and elevated by Ford's precise integration of style and substance.
August 29, 2017
Nocturnal Animals offers film as crisp, well-cut, tautly sewn, and artfully made to perfection.
August 22, 2017
Nocturnal Animals ends up mirroring the emptiness and decadence it means to expose.
August 14, 2017
[Nocturnal Animals] is a brilliant sleight of hand that demands multiple viewings and the promise of different viewing experiences every time.
August 10, 2017
Nocturnal Animals ultimately reaches for something that isn't there, and falters. Ford is the consummate commercial artist, but he seems to hate it - while still, as an artist, trafficking in it.
July 15, 2017
As you might expect from Ford, this is a movie that is stunning to look at; less predictably, it is also brutally tense.

That's what this movie is, really: a beautiful, shattered, f***ed-up dream.
June 23, 2017
[It's] one of the best American films of 2016.
June 13, 2017
Ford doesn't have anything especially new or interesting to say about the nature of vengeance or love, or the emptiness of material riches. But Nocturnal Animals has fun and looks damn good saying it. Maybe that's enough.
