Nocturnal Animals

TIFF16 #9

Reason for pick - had to use up a premium ticket

What a waste of talent. Ford's reach completely exceeds his grasp, this was just utterly terrible. It had one magnificent highway scene, and NOTHING else ... it even used a cheap jump scare that didn't fit into anything. What a completely amateur, often cringe worthy, endeavour.

No rating because we walked out. Only the second TIFF film we've done that on in eight years. ( Riot Club two years ago was the other ).

Mr Ford, I think you should stick to your knitting.

(correction .. we also walked out of The Assassin last year, so that brings the walk-out count to 3 )
