Nightmare Alley

I have watched this movie once. This was on .


An ambitious carny with a talent for manipulating people with a few well-chosen words hooks up with a female psychiatrist who is even more dangerous than he is.

Nightmare Alley


Beautiful cinematography with intricate production design and a great cast. A complete story that comes full circle, with con-artists and deception. It’s a simple story that’s easy to follow with no tricks or surprises. But there are problems with the first act and the runtime is excessive. A nice throwback to a classic era and style of filmmaking. Technically brilliant, but also paint-by-numbers storytelling.
