Tom Ford was ''struck'' by the energy of 'Nocturnal Animals'.
The 55-year-old fashion designer and filmmaker has admitted he had ''so much'' filming scenes for his latest production and was surprised by the ''beauty'' of the film.
Speaking to GQ magazine, the creative mastermind said: ''We had so much fun that day. And when I watched the film, I was just struck by the beauty of it, by the beauty of them and by their energy. I just love that sequence. They are the representation of people who have let go of what society says you're supposed to be. And what are they? Joyful. And what is Susan who's being everything society says she should be? Miserable.''

It's been seven years since designer Tom Ford made a splash with his award-winning writing-directing debut A Single Man, and it's no surprise that his second film is just as exquisitely beautiful to look at. What's unexpected is the complexity of the storytelling. Adapted by Ford from Austin Wright's novel Tony and Susan, this movie has three sides to it: a romantic drama, a darkly personal odyssey and a freaky thriller. These elements kind of fight for the audience's attention, but they're sharply played and packed with intense emotion.
Set in Los Angeles, everything revolves around gallery owner Susan (Amy Adams), who lives in a spectacular home with her banker husband Hutton (Armie Hammer), who's facing financial problems. Susan is shocked when she receives a manuscript by her ex-husband Edward (Jake Gyllenhaal), who has finally finished his long-gestating novel. But as she reads it, she realises that their break-up inspired the story, and she pictures Edward in the central role as Tony, a man travelling through Texas with his wife and daughter (Isla Fisher and Ellie Bamber), who are kidnapped and brutalised by roadside thugs led by the unstable Ray (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). So Tony teams up with jaded detective Bobby (Michael Shannon) to track them down.
The film's central narrative is Susan's deeply internalised discovery of her own dark soul, which plays out both in her scenes with Hutton and figuratively in the fictional thriller narrative. All of these things take complex twists and turns that have vivid moral shadings. But of course the Wild West action element continually steals focus from the more understated personal drama. In this sense, Gyllenhaal has the trickiest role, or rather two roles, as the story's catalyst and victim. Meanwhile, Adams is strikingly transparent as Susan, engaging in jagged interaction with both Gyllenhaal's enigmatic Edward and Hammer's eerily heartless Hutton.

Enigmatic American fashion designer Tom Ford will make his London Fashion Week debut in the capital tonight (February 18, 2013), no doubt attracting a slew of celebrities and a global audience of fashionistas. The former Gucci designer has previously introduced his collections at relatively low-key private showings in front of exclusively selected audiences.
The chance to attend Tom Ford's first womenswear catwalk show is a massive incentive for press and buyers though such is the rarity of the designer's show, the official London Fashion Week website simply lists tonight's venue as: SEE INVITE. Ford is certainly a shadowy figure in the world of fashion, though has his designing fingers in various pies. In 2005, he opened production company Fade To Black, through which he directed, produced and co-wrote his first feature film A Single Man, which landed Colin Firth a nomination for Best Actor at the Oscars.
