"Mister, I was born for it." [laughs hysterically between bouts of sobbing] Bone-chilling. I haven't seen a character as evil and cunning as Stanton Carlisle. People have said this is Guillermo del Toro's first movie in a while that doesn't feature fantasy monsters, and you probably know what I'm about to say, but the people are indeed the monsters of this movie, front and center.

While the pacing is a bit slow, del Toro makes up for it with deep and interesting characters and intriguing story. Even if it lacks some of the panache that del Toro has shown in the past, even a lesser film from the man is better than more typical offerings.

Grimy yet gorgeous, "Nightmare Alley" has some of the best production design of the year. Sadly, it's also one of the emptiest, most underwhelming, and most disconnected movies of 2021, and of visionary Guillermo del Toro's whole career.
