Could Nocturnal Animals be the best film of 2016?

Published: January 9, 2017

Nocturnal Animals is a haunting romantic thriller that explores three different stories; the past, the present and the fictional. Amy Adams plays the role of an artist who is now in the process of re-evaluating her life.

She then receives a present from her ex-husband Jake Gyllenhaal; a manual script from his soon to be published novel. The film then indulges in shocking intimacy and gripping tension that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption.

Nocturnal Animals has been directed by Tom Ford, a fashion designer turned filmmaker whose talents also include his previous film A Single Man (2009). But after seven years of absence, he’s finally back with his new film Nocturnal Animals.

Could this be the best film of 2016?
