Episode Summary

Tom Ford took 5-6 years to make his second film and we took our time to bring you the episode about it. This episode got a little long as we unpacked the sexual assault, lingering shots and the masterful techniques he uses in just his second film.

Episode Notes

Episode 16 | Nocturnal Animals

Tom Ford's second film, Nocturnal Animals, could be described as a film about reading a book or three different films expertly put together by a master of the his craft. Damian and Josh talk at length about this film, after dusting a little rust off, and the three key moments where Tom Ford lingers in his scenes.

Film Synopsis

A successful Los Angeles art-gallery owner's idyllic life is marred by the constant traveling of her handsome second husband. While he is away, she is shaken by the arrival of a manuscript written by her first husband, who she has not seen in years. The manuscript tells the story of a teacher who finds a trip with his family turning into a nightmare. As Susan reads the book, it forces her to examine her past and confront some dark truths.
