Mod­ern noir leaves a mark

Lennox Herald - - THE TICKET -

Noc­tur­nal An­i­mals (15)

A pe­cu­liar beast this one – and not an easy one to keep on top of.

Amy Adams and Jake Gyl­len­haal are in out­stand­ing form in a mod­ern noir drip­ping with mis­deeds.

Tom Ford – di­rect­ing only his sec­ond movie – helms with con­fi­dence and the film looks like a piece of art come to life.

Pet (18)

Mean-spir­ited it may be, but this psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller has more twists and turns than a roller­coaster.

It’s an in­tense bat­tle of the sexes that never fails to shock and sur­prise.

But the story is never quite as clever as it aims to be and the lat­ter stages de­gen­er­ate into lit­tle more than splat­ter vi­o­lence.
