A compelling thriller with an open-ended ending that feels far too easy for what it had going for it.
Nocturnal Animals starts out very strong. It feels reminiscent of Lynch’s Lost Highway or Mulholland Dr. The main character lives a luxurious life surrounded by some very striking pieces of art (art pieces which, throughout the story, make things even more thrilling and surreal). She reads her ex-boyfriend’s novel which quite honestly makes us feel like we’re in a bad dream. The way the novel starts out feels like Michael Haneke’s Funny Games. Its opening scene with Aaron Taylor-Johnson so brilliantly builds in tension with his character’s mind games. The story however turns into a bit of a tame crime mystery held up with a sort of fun performance from Michael Shannon. The potential to be a very cryptic thriller is there, but decides instead to put all the pieces together for us. As a Lynch fan, this movie made me crave something stranger. I really wanted to be left mystified but instead I got an ending that was kind of obvious.
Only in a world where a Reality TV star becomes President could Tom Ford be one of the best directors of the year… I guess that’d be this world.
_Final rating:★★★★ – An all round good movie with a little something extra._
Can’t people enjoy movies any more?
Listen, I’m not a movie guru, I don’t study arts, I’m just your average Joe that loves movies. I’ve seen lots of movies, I don’t discriminate, terror, drama, action, animated you name it, I can perfectly differentiate between a bad from a good movie, I don’t need the biased comments of the so called movie critics on IMDb. Thanks God I didn’t pay attention to all the misguided comments about this movie, Nocturnal Animals is a beautiful & stylish movie, great photography, solid acting and a solid plot that will stay with you long after you finish it. I don’t understand why there’s so much envy and hate in the film industry, the wannabe movie critics can’t take that a guy who came from the fashion world actually can created a pretty good movie. My fellow reader, please don’t miss the chance to see this movie.
Nice artsy movie about actions having consequences
This movie is a vast improvement on the book it was based on, it is much more piercing, intelligent and distilled with some brilliant additions. Cinematography is outstanding, movie is atmospheric and highly stylized, reminiscent of the best works of Hitchcock and Kubrick, with great attention to minute details – deliberate style that comes across as natural, but only on second examination is revealed as extremely deep and thoughtful.
The movie is concerned with Susan, an upper class woman married into wealth, that has since begun to crumble, who leads an empty life, that is falling apart, as she is unloved and deeply unhappy. She receives a novel, written by her ex-husband, who she cruelly abandoned as he was not able to provide the luxury she now lives in, being a “weakling” as a young aspiring writer, in estimation of her overbearing mother. The novel is about some scary rednecks destroying a man’s family, after pushing their car off road. It turns out there are clear parallels between the redneck monsters in the story within a story and her actions, driven by her inner selfish monstrosity and cynical and rich mother but with the exact sophistication of an average redneck psychopath. Shattered to the core, after reading the book, she invites her ex to a dinner but is left waiting, and realizes sadly that she is never going to be forgiven, that hell is eternal and that her empty existence now is a karmic payback that she very well deserved for her past shallow choices and selfish crimes.
The movie portrays some of the issues that are in fact pretty common, and the movie is partly underappreciated due to not fitting in the woke-hysteria that was just starting to boil at the time of movie release. But objectively, it is one hell of a masterpiece of sophisticated storytelling, that also carries a message about consequences of the wrong choices people make in life.
