    Zodiac

    ★★★★½

    While perhaps a little too long and lacks bit of David Fincher's usual flair, but Zodiac is an engrossing crime procedural and I have a huge soft-spot for these kinda films. Excellent performances, although Robert Downey Jr just sorta disappears towards the end. Gyllenhaal is reliable as he always.

    Whatever. Still better than Snatched. Didn't hate, wasn't great.

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★★★½

    Nocturnal Animals might just feature the weirdest opening titles of all-time. From the opening shot I had no idea what I was in for. In fact, I had no idea what I was in for at all, I've never ever seen a trailer for this film, I went in completely blind, and I loved it.

    It's a beautiful looking film, from lots of scenic New Mexico cinematography and a bit of night-time city scenes. The performances were all amazing (Gyllenhaal…
