    Nocturnal Animals

    Quite amazingly bad. You keep waiting for the film to provide any reason that the Amy Adams frame story should even exist, but it never comes; she's just reading the book. And it is a very bad book indeed. There is some welcome, albeit unintentional, comedy in the flashback scenes when Gyllenhaal and Adams turn into their own video game avatars.

    What Have I Done to Deserve This?

    ★★★½

    With his visual talents not fully developed, Almodóvar is not yet Almodóvar. More like a cross between Fassbinder and John Waters. Anyone appalled by the rape scene in "I'm So Excited!" will love the mother selling her son to a pedophilic dentist. I don't know if I find any of it especially funny, but it is strange enough to be engaging.
