What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Shingai Darangwa Neo-noir psychological thriller defies limits.
Jim Judy While it certainly won’t be for all viewers (the opening shot of the dancing ladies will quickly determine that), I found Nocturnal Animals fascinating to watch as its meticulously plotted tale of revenge unfolded, maybe not as I initially imagined it in my head, but certainly in a more than satisfactory way.
Tomatometer Well-acted and lovely to look at, Nocturnal Animals further underscores writer-director Tom Ford’s distinctive visual and narrative skill.
