Nightmare Alley

Nightmare Alley ★★★½

Nightmare Alley: Vision in Darkness and Light 

I’m not sure if the B&W version is MUCH better than the color but a second watch gave me so much to chew on. 

I continue to adore David Straithairn and Toni Colette, and honestly Cate’s Bacallian brilliance was all the more obvious and exciting the less distracted I was by the colors in her INCREDIBLE inlaid burl-wood office 

I caught this time too that at the end TBN not only had Enoch and Stan’s old radio, but is wearing the sheriff’s religious amulet from earlier —- that, had Stan even been allowed to perform his mentalist act, the only person he could divine any real information about would’ve been himself
