‘Nocturnal Animals’

20161014175110nocturnal_animals_posterStylish but deeply cynical, intoxicating but unnerving, director Tom Ford’s follow up to his 2009 debut A Single Man is a sensual minefield of emotions and narrative.

A beautifully modulated performance by Amy Adams (Arrival, American Hustle) as the unhappily married high-end LA art dealer is juxtaposed by the raw emotion of ex-husband Jake Gyllenhaal (Southpaw, Donnie Darko) featuring in a different but interlinked storyline to the one inhabited by Adams.

With a support cast including Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass, Savages) and Michael Shannon (Man of Steel, Revolutionary Road), Nocturnal Animals is a sophisticated thriller with more than a hint of psychological revenge.
