(2016) Nocturnal Animals

I’ve heard a few people mention this one in the horror circles so I decided to finally pull the trigger. I was and still am (just ended) pretty blown away by this one.

This ranks among some of the most depressive movies I’ve seen to date. It makes a bold statement about decisions, ugliness, selfishness and the value of protecting the people you love. As Gyllenhaal’s character says, “When you love someone you have to be careful with it, you might never get it again.” The statement itself sounds cheesy out of context but the film displays its importance among the grittiness of the violent story in parallel with a story more relatable to the audience.

Excellent film, highly recommend it. It will most likely be one that connects with each person on a slightly different, more personal level but it has something for everyone to appreciate.

9/10
