An exhilarating tale of a psychopathic serial killer, the film sees Willem Dafoe as the true protagonist and storyteller, brilliantly portraying his desire to keep his wife alive, while being consumed by a lust for blood and violence. Having just made his debut as a director with "Nacho Libre" and "Carrie", Dafoe now gives a riveting performance as the psychopathic serial killer in "Nocturnal Animals". Having the physical strength to withstand and endure every pain and torture inflicted on him, the movie is in fact the true story of serial killer/killers Albert Fish, a real life individual, who was convicted of his crimes in 1980. The film features the first and only appearance of Fish himself, who was found dead in his prison cell, after his sentence was commuted. Filmed in the beautiful state of Florida, the film stars a cast of top names, including Willem Dafoe, Amy Adams, Javier Bardem, James Franco and James McAvoy, all of whom give very powerful and insightful performances. The film has an incredibly violent and disturbing ending, which is one of the best and most memorable endings I have ever seen in a film. The film is not for everyone, but for those who appreciate and admire a good film, it is a must see. Highly recommended.

With a little bit of editing, this movie would have been perfect. But, it's a fantastic piece of work that's worth watching.

The first few minutes of the film will probably make you cringe. Some will call it too long and some will call it a tad on the long side. Regardless, it is the most important part of the film. The second half is less strong and you are left to wonder if you were watching a two-hour movie or two hours of the human mind's reactions to the brutal events that unfolded on screen. That is not to say that the film is not worth watching. It is. The acting, especially from the young actresses, was outstanding. And the plot was great, if not original. The cinematography was great, and the editing was masterful. The score was excellent. And the overall feel of the film is a little bleak. But I didn't mind that, and I did not mind that much. I thought the film was really well done, and I'm glad I did not waste my time watching this in a theater.

I thought that this was a very good movie. The story was well thought out, the acting was good and it kept you interested from the start to the end. It kept me interested from beginning to end and it was very surprising at the end. I liked the fact that it showed what happened after the incident with the dog. I thought that they did a good job with the animals in this movie. The only thing that I didn't like was the ending. I think that they could have made the ending a little bit more romantic. They could have made it more of a love story with the dog and the woman, it would have made the movie better. Overall, I thought that this movie was great.

The first thing that comes to my mind is the long takes and how it was done. And how it felt like a movie, not a documentary. I thought the film was a bit slow, but the acting was great. The ending was a little ambiguous. I loved it, and I think you will too. The acting was so great, I love it!

I was not expecting to like this movie. I saw it only because I wanted to see a different movie than "Shaun of the Dead". I'm not a big fan of the British comedy genre, and this movie didn't do it for me. I do like to be surprised, and this movie gave me that feeling. It's a different kind of movie than the usual British comedies. The movie is based on the book "The Bone Collector" by A. Scott Berg. The movie has a few unexpected twists and turns. The movie does not feel like a typical British comedy. I like it very much. It's a movie I'd like to watch again.

I will admit I was disappointed when I first saw the preview for this movie, I thought it would be boring, and overhyped. I was wrong. I was completely surprised at how intense and heart breaking this movie was. I will admit, the first 15 minutes or so of the movie, it was kind of slow, but I had a lot of expectations going in, so I was expecting a boring movie, I was wrong. This movie had a lot of suspense, but not all of it was given away. There was a lot of mystery, but I still had to figure out the mystery. This movie was intense, but not really suspenseful. I was not shocked at all by the ending, and it did not make me cry, but it did make me cry when I was watching it. I think this movie is perfect for someone who is looking for a great thriller, and a movie that has a lot of suspense. I give this movie a 9 out of 10, it was great, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good thriller. 9/10

I was surprised to see a movie with no stars and few people. I don't know why but I just had a good time with this movie. There are some parts that are not what I expected but they are very good. The acting was good and there are some surprises. I can't wait for the DVD release. There are a lot of interesting parts in the movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone. You will not regret watching this movie.

I watched this film today and thought it was excellent. I am a lover of Coen brothers and I've enjoyed the other films they've made. This film is different. I have never seen anything like it. The film is set in a prison in Colorado and it was filmed in a similar fashion to 'Fargo' and 'No Country For Old Men' to give it a realism to it. I really enjoyed the story and the story behind it. I have watched this film three times now and I love it every time I watch it. I thought the story was very interesting and very well told. I would recommend this film to anyone. The characters were very believable. I thought that everyone acted very well and their characters were very well done. The actors did a great job and the story was very believable. I hope you enjoy this film as much as I did.

This is an interesting movie. I don't know why it is not more well known, but it is a very well made film. There are some disturbing scenes, and some very disturbing things are shown in this movie. This movie is about a rich young woman, played by Mia Wasikowska, who is obsessed with her rich husband, played by Tom Cruise. She takes a friend into her house, and begins to follow him around, and to have sex with him. He begins to get mad at her and starts to try to kill her. The movie is based on a true story, and the story is a good one. This is a good movie, that you should see. The acting is good, and the story is interesting. It is a very good movie.

I am currently reading up on Hitchcock's filmography. His first feature film was the great "Psycho" (1960). The film was a critical and commercial success and spawned two sequels and a host of other films. The film opens with a brief sequence of the psychotic murders that follow the first film. Hitchcock's main character, the novelist Henry Greenleaf Whistler (Michael Caine), leaves his small southern town for the big city. He is disturbed by the quality of life he has experienced in the small town. As a result of this, he becomes increasingly paranoid and withdrawn. This film is a very dark film. In many ways it is an examination of the human mind and the effects it can have on those who come into contact with it. In my opinion, this film is not a typical Hitchcock film. It is more of a psychological study of human psychology. It is very dark and disturbing and is definitely not for the faint of heart. This film is a good example of the power of the mind over the body. The acting is superb. The film is shot very well. The music is also very good. I would recommend this film to anyone. The only reason I am not giving this film a 10 is because it is a bit too long. This film is a must see.

I went into this movie expecting it to be another horrible film, but I was pleasantly surprised. The director made the most of his limited resources and I have to say, he did a great job. I feel that this is one of the better films I have seen in a while. The performances were great and the cinematography was great. The story was decent and the pace of the film was just right. I also liked the way they made the camera work feel more natural. I am not a fan of the slow-motion style of movies, but I found this movie to be well done. I also thought the acting was great and the movie had a very realistic feel to it. I can't say that I was bored because I was never bored. I was really invested in the characters and was really interested in what was happening. I think the only thing that I would have changed is that it should have been a little longer. Overall, I give this movie an A+.

My favorite scene in the movie is when Theo is being attacked by the other guy in the elevator, I don't know why, but I do know that I would love to have a elevator attack scene with Theo in it, not that I'm a huge fan of film or film-making, but it's just something I like. There are other good scenes, but those are the only ones I liked in the movie. I don't know why I'm reviewing a movie like this, I mean, it's just a movie, I'm just saying it. It's a good movie, you can watch it and not have any bad feelings, I think. It's very good, if you don't mind to see a thriller movie that is very good. I recommend it to anyone who like good movies.

I'm sorry, but this movie is definitely one of the best I've seen in a long time. It was quite gripping and the actors were great. If you like thriller, you should definitely check it out. 9/10

This is a very compelling film, with a very interesting plot and interesting characters. It's very rare that a film can make you think in such a powerful way, and this is one of the rare cases. It is also a very good movie, with a very good director. It's really rare that a film can take you to such a level of emotions and that the emotions stay with you for a long time afterwards. It's a film that has a lot of subtle things going on and a lot of things that you don't expect. It's really a film that's really not for everyone, but for those who enjoy thought provoking films and a story that's very intriguing, you should definitely give this one a look.

I have been waiting for this film to come out and finally I have been able to watch it. I had been warned by friends not to go to see this film because it was a controversial film but I was surprised by how good it was. I had been expecting it to be more violent than it actually was. There were many disturbing scenes but the scenes that were the most disturbing were the ones that were more intense. It also had a good story. I didn't know what to expect when I went to see it but I was surprised that it was a good film. I would recommend this film to anyone. It was well worth my money. The actors were great and the story was well told. It is definitely a film that I would watch again.

This film has no specific message, but the sheer feel of the whole film is intense and tense. It is a film that will not be easily forgotten. I really enjoyed this film, and I am not sure what all the negative reviews are about. It is an intelligent and interesting film that I will watch again and again. I was able to see the film in 3D for the first time and the image was so realistic, it was very frightening. I do not know why some people are complaining about the lack of nudity and sexuality. I would like to point out that the main character is a woman and she is not necessarily a woman in the conventional sense. She is not beautiful, and I do not see that the subject matter of the film is going to be appealing to some people. It is a very good film and I recommend it to anyone who wants a really good film that will not disappoint.

I really don't like to criticize movies and if I had to do it I would just say "good" instead of "good". This is the first time I have ever given this movie a 9. I've seen many critics who give it a 10 but I still consider it a 9 because it's a good movie. The movie is not only about a boy who's sick and wants to see a doctor, but also about a story about a man who finds a way to help his family. It's the story of a father and his family, who just want to get by. He's the type of man who's always going to be there for his family. And he's not afraid to show it. I would have liked to see more about the characters but I think that is the most important part of the movie. The movie has a good rhythm. I think that if I didn't know the name of the director I would have thought it was another kind of movie but it's not. It's a really good movie and it's not only about the story of a sick boy but also about the father and his family. If you like movies with a good rhythm you will like this one. I give it a 9.

I read the book, and the film version of it, and the film is much better than the book. The film is more grounded in reality, but it is also more like a mystery thriller. There are so many things that the book didn't cover that the film focuses on them. I loved the mystery aspect of the film. I also loved the character development. I really loved how the film explored the development of Sofia. She was very strong in the book, but in the film, she was so strong and so quick to react that I really felt that she was strong and quick. It was interesting to see the change that she went through, especially with the marriage of her and Albert. I also loved the character of Charlie. I thought the character of Charlie was very interesting, and I loved the change that he went through. He really felt like he had to grow and learn to become a better man. The movie was also interesting to see how the characters interacted with each other. They were a very close group of people, and I really felt that they were close and there for each other. I also loved the relationship that the brothers had with Sofia. I thought it was very interesting to see how they were growing as a family. They really became more close, and the brothers really felt like they were brothers. Overall, I thought the film was very interesting, and I loved the characters. I really felt that this was a very strong film, and I would recommend it to anyone.

This movie is so well made that I wanted to see it again. It is extremely disturbing, but you have to see it to understand it. The movie was very well done and it was hard to watch because of the violent nature of the film. The acting was superb and I loved the script. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a good movie. It's very disturbing, but it's well made.

A character of three in a movie is usually a terrible choice. You know it from the get-go. But this is not the case here. The character of Nicole Kidman was amazing. I don't know if I've ever seen her as a character before but she was amazing. The rest of the cast was great too. The movie was great. It is definitely one of the best movies of this year. It was funny, well paced, and was not boring at all. The ending was also very emotional and it kept me guessing until the end. I am not a big fan of music but I think the score was great. It was well-suited for the film and added a nice touch to it. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good mystery movie.
