*NEW* NOCTURNAL ANIMALS REVIEW *NEW*

Strange, hypnotic, tense, nail biting, different. Certainly one for the books. An art gallery owner (Amy Adams) is haunted by her ex-husband's novel (Jake Gyllenhaal), a violent thriller she interprets as a veiled threat and a symbolic revenge tale. I hadn't even sat down and got comfortable before I was wondering what the hell I … Continue reading *NEW* NOCTURNAL ANIMALS REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* INDIGNATION REVIEW *NEW*

A stellar turn from Lerman and good chemistry makes this uneven coming of age drama one to watch.

I'm not familiar with Philip Roth's … Continue reading *NEW* INDIGNATION REVIEW *NEW*
