    This is not about making a bad choice but about both choices being wrong.

    One of the most, no the most romantic film. It's a real story. This would haunt forever. My head and heart became so twisted and yet I watch it even now. Whiskey and this film, you're either dead or just get out. It's my life. I am Edward and Tony, I had written similar scripts, although my life is much more dark in reality. If I m to write myself as a character it would be vomitous

    1. I love this movie. So intense, so heart-breaking. What's scary is that the road trip scenario can so easily happen in real life (probably already has happened to someone somewhere)
    2. Where can I get that T-shirt????

    Hey Chris, I've been a huge fan for years now and as I just rewatched Nocturnal Animals and also wanted to rewatch your opinion on it, I started wondering why you're not doing actual movie analysis every once in a while ? I also definetly like your Interviews - would dig more of these as well - but I think a lot of your subscribers would love to hear your interpretations and more elaborated opinions on different films as well. Is that something you thought of doing in the furure or wouldn't it fit with your time or idea of the channel in general ? Keeping it how it is would still be great of course :) I've been curious for while now and hope this reaches out to you, keep it up pal !

    Aaron Taylor Johnson terrified me so much in this movie that every time I looked at him, I had to think of him playing John Lennon to feel less intimidated.

    Isla Fisher does a great job too! Feel like everyone overlooks her performance and what her character contributes to the themes throughout the movie.

    I don't care if it's a great movie. If you have to get through 3 mins of naked obese woman dancing then I'm not watching it.

    revenge within a revenge story. Great foreshadowing in the beginning when Amy Adams suffers a paper cut from opening Gyllenhaal's manuscript. That's just one detail out of many.
    really need to watch this movie half a dozen times in order to find all the "oh, I see what they did there", moments!

  • workoutfanatic787

    AA's character actually runs an art-gallery as a director

    Jake Gyllenhaal and thriller movies go together like peanut butter and jelly.
    Did you see Nightcrawler? That film was tense.

    this is one of my new favorite films.... 100% this gets an A+ why the hell did i wait this long to watch it. Once i understood what this film was really about, I literally got shivers down my whole body.

    So yeah, I just finished watching it and understand nothing. I will think about it for the coming days, but will look some explanations after if I can't figure it out myself. This was really "mulholland drive"-level of cryptic of a movie.

    i just saw this movie and it is amazing. i dont know if anyone noticed this but in the scene where they break up and she leaves him, jakes character is standing in front a green car, early in the film we see the killer wearing a shoe that is the same color as the car from the break up we also see him wearing the same green shoe in the finale of the move. i just think it was cleaver showing even if it wasn't intentional that an author uses experience or subconsciously use images from the past in there work.

    This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Ford just couldn't help himself. I was more angry after watching this movie than I was after watching "Knock knock". It was horrible from beginning to end.

    Maybe it's because Tom Ford was a world reknowned fashion designer before he got into directing but his movies are impeccably shot, the cinematography is beautiful, and everything from the sets to the little nuances are extremely well placed. Not to mention everyone is well dressed. I guess a fashion designer would make for a stylish director. " A Single Man" was fantastic too.
