Jim Judy quote iconWhile 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.
