"Enjoy the absurdity of our world. It's a lot less painful. Believe me, our world is a lot less painful than the real world." -Nocturnal Animals (2016)
Based on a novel by Austin Wright, Nocturnal Animals is a dark and story-into-a-story thriller by Tom Ford. Amy Adams yet again proves why she's one of the most versatile actresses with a terrific performance. Also, we cannot rule out Jake Gyllenhaal's acting which made this movie more lively and gripping. There is a number of smaller but important characters like Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Armie Hammer, Michael Sheen, Laura Linney without which this movie wouldn't be perfect. The cinematography is also spot on! This movie is a masterpiece of sophisticated storytelling, that also carries a deep message. Kudos! for attention to minute details.
My final verdict: People giving bad reviews to this movie don't understand a masterpiece. This is a must-watch movie.
My overall score: 8.4⭐/10
