10 films you must see if you liked “Nocturnal Animals”

7 – WRITTEN ON THE WIND by Douglas Sirk (1956)

Douglas Sirk is historically linked to the contemporary Tom Ford. Both men have a taste for the soap-operatic, especially of the kind that pushes the boundaries of its usual narrative. Nocturnal Animals is, at its core, a tale of torn romance, and the relationships between all of its characters are all but traditionally defined. The tension in these relationships is a big part of why Ford’s film works and a great example of the way in which Sirk masterfully made use of it can be found in Written on the Wind.
