Show?
Stan's final fate leaves some very problematic connotations regarding alcoholism and homelessness... Are we supposed to feel sorry for Stan for ending up an addict and homeless or vindicated as if him ending up as the new "geek" is deserved punishment? If it's the former, then this is just another instance of Hollywood glorifying a psychopathic narcissist conman (just like The Greatest Showman, Bad Education etc.). If it's the latter, then it tarnishes the memory of the other unfortunate homeless people that were exploited. Is Del Toro implying that some of them maybe deserve to be taken advantage of because of their choices? Really messy stuff...

Another Del Toro film that feels more like an excuse for showing off art direction than an actual film. Bad pacing, kinda empty (very light on story, drama, tension, emotion or anything interesting in general), predictable, and even the acting is a bit hit or miss. I didn’t buy Bradley Cooper’s performance as a scam artist, and Cate Blanchett is really overselling it. The rest of the cast is pretty good though. As already mentioned, the production makes up for a lot of the flaws, but I just feel like Del Toro’s talents would be better served if he’d chosen a career as cinematographer or art director. Besides _Pan’s Labyrinth_, I just find a lot of his stuff very dull and overly indulgent, often emphasizing style over substance. This thing is no different. 4.5/10

Stylish, noir elements, stellar cast... Should be a slam-dunk. But it isn't. It is instead slow, predictable and ends of a really hammy callback. Cant blame the actors who are all fantastic. The cinematography is excellent. Just a poor plot. And it is a remake I believe? I won't be searching out the original. 6/10

This is great! I loved it!

'Nightmare Alley' is a superb watch! I particularly enjoyed the beginning and end, which are truly excellent; the middle part isn't as strong, but is still top notch in its own right. I love the dark atmosphere it sets from the get-go, the sound design is outstanding - More

As is expected from Guillermo del Toro, this is an interesting one. The universal positive here is the acting. Bradley Cooper and Rooney Mara are both excellent, as is the entire ensemble, with Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, and David Strathairn being the standouts. Cate Blanchett was perhaps the o More

Stanton Carlisle (Bradley Cooper); is a man trying to get by in late 1930s America in the new film "Nightmare Alley". Our first introduction to Stanton is less than flattering and he soon finds himself employed at a Carnival after coming upon it by chance.

The eager Stanton is given advice and to More
