NOCTURNAL ANIMALS is a nasty story filled with sex, murder, revenge and some of the most deplorable things one human can do to another. On the other hand, the film also finds beauty, making it impossible to look away.

Ford is no stranger to creating fashion statements - and here on the big screen, he's delivered his most striking one yet.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
November 5, 2018
A drearily pitch-black and distinctly American psychosexual thriller that painfully explores the worst sides of humanity

By now all of the "I'd pay to watch Amy Adams read ____" jokes have been made, but suffice it to say that in practice it's... not exactly a riveting spectacle, let's put it that way.

Definitely not for everyone, but it is a film that proves to be somewhat rewarding as long as you stay patient.

Both the good thing and the bad thing about Nocturnal Animals is that its fiction-within-fiction stands on its own.

Revenge is a dish best served cold, as the saying goes, but Tom Ford says that it can be hot, too. Hot, risqué, reckless, crazy and even a bit ridiculous.
August 30, 2018
A cinematic masterpiece that balances more than one narrative while still managing to tell a concise story with twists and turns and mesmerizing visuals to go with it.

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.
August 26, 2018
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.
August 25, 2018
A gorgeous, harrowing and occasionally bizarre meta-thriller that mixes multiple narrative threads together with beautiful visuals and a breathtaking score.

It is satisfying to puzzle out how the two plots fit together and the film is visually stunning in parts.
August 22, 2018
"Nocturnal Animals" is an unusually creative film, capitalizing on the stylized know-how of Ford to bring both elegance and grit to the screen.

August 21, 2018
As it stands - it is thrilling, dark as molasses tale that leaves you shaken and stirred.
August 6, 2018
Yet again, Tom Ford succeeds in leaving his audience with a topic of conversation to discuss after the film ends.
June 26, 2018
Nocturnal Animals wants to be provocative but its scattered parts all add up to something a bit silly.
June 13, 2018
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.
December 4, 2017
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.
