Such a bleak, dark film - and one that is tough to watch, but Tom Ford does an excellent job of casting and the two-pronged story definitely has an impact. It won't lighten up your day, but if you're in the mood for something that will challenge your emotions, give it a spin.

The performances from everyone was terrific and I do mean all the cast. Amy Adams is an excellent actress and here she once again proves that. I love the little details to her character that gives it more depth and with the long break of silence that boils up her emotions. Adams dose it again and she will continue blowing my socks off.

Michael Shannon and Jake Gyllenhall are one of the best working actors of this generation. And in this movie, both of them deliver such a raw and grounded performance that every actor would d...
