There is no more singular and distinct voice working in mainstream cinema than Guillermo del Toro right now, and Nightmare Alley might be the most thorough explication of his obsessions and themes yet.
An intriguing, engrossing, beautifully shot noir thriller... a ripping tale of deceit, betrayal and comeuppance, with the occasional murder...Cooper proves a perfect fit as the suave confidence man. He's the quintessential rat with a gold tooth.
A rare del Toro film that's not an outright spook show, Nightmare Alley isn't quite the filmmaker's best - but it's not far off, boasting an enveloping atmosphere, compelling characters, and gorgeous filmmaking.
