Movie: Nocturnal Animals

This movie was nothing like I thought it would be.  I knew that it was about a woman who was forwarded the draft of a book written by her ex-husband and dedicated to her. On reading it, she came to question past events, and finds that revenge can be served in many ways.

I was expecting a bit of a dinner-table psychodrama. I wasn’t prepared for the violence or dystopian bleakness of this movie.  A very critical review ‘I’m so glad to spoil this film for you’ found much the same thing.  I don’t know if I’ll be quite as malicious, but this film is certainly NOT a dinner-table psychodrama. Don’t think Woody Allen: think Mad Max.

My rating: Hard to say -4? but too violent and disturbing for me.

  1. Last week I saw the French movie Rosalie Blum, an odd little character study/love story, which I would recommend.

    • Yes- I saw it too, and enjoyed it. (I’ve written a little review and it’s next on the list to be posted- I’ve fallen behind.) It was lovely to see something that isn’t American.
