Highly Suspect Reviews: Nocturnal Animals

  • by

Director Tom Ford (A Simple Man) takes us through a film that has a film inside it and then kinda another prequel film to boot. Amy Adams is rich, beautiful, successful, but kinda dead inside. When her ex-husband (Jake Gyllenhaal) sends her an advance copy of his new book that is dedicated to her, she is swept up in its violent narrative even as she starts to realize that its emotional subtext of deep anger and regret is directed at her.

The real question is: is this the big Oscar hopeful that Focus Features is hoping for? We have some thoughts on that. Listen to Chris, Kyle, and Mike break it all down for you.
