Nocturnal Animals ★★★½

I think this could get a lot better on rewatch. I really think it could grow on me as my brain settles into the three-timeline structure, complete with three-act structure for each - there is a lot going on her. Also, early on in my brain I dismissed the blank performance of Amy Adams as false and Jake Gyllenhaal's over-the-top intense "fictional" section performance as cheesy but on reflection I'm pretty sure that was intentional. I'm conflicted on this one and could be easily talked into loving it.

Will be discussed on a future episode of the Cinereelists podcast.
