Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal in Tom Ford's Thriller 'Nocturnal Animals'

Amy Adams had two films at the festivals this year, with both Arrival and Tom Ford's latest, Nocturnal Animals making their debuts in Venice, and then showing in Toronto over the last week as well. Arrival may be the one with the better reception overall, as designer turned director Tom Ford has made his first film since A Single Man, and this one is getting a more mixed reaction. Critics are finding it interesting, but a bit on the artsy pretentious side (who, Tom Ford, pretentious? you don't say...), so it may be harder for it to find an audience. Still, Michael Shannon is always entertaining, and his campy performance here has sparked potential Oscar buzz in the supporting category, so it may be worth watching just for that.
