4 Stars for NOCTURNAL ANIMALS? What a joke! The unnecessarily explicit -- and ultimately pointless -- opening scene of nude, grotesquely fat women trying to gyrate provocatively at an art opening will have many members of the audience reaching for the barf bag or walking out altogether. That stomach-turning scene doesn't connect with anything else in the movie -- it's inserted simply for its shock value -- and it makes an otherwise riveting revenge story unrecommendable, IMHO. Only a Tom Ford fan boy, such as Glenn McDonald, would send his unsuspecting readers to such a deeply flawed film, without warning them that they might not make it through the first five minutes without tossing their cookies.
"Brühl's clipped accept"??? I think you meant ACCENT!
BTW, there are several online articles about how Brühl -- who is fluent in German -- had to retool his accent to sound AUSTRIAN like Niki Lauda.
N&O headquarters are located on "South McDowell Street" (no relation), not "South Dawson Street."
