AMERICAN ANIMALS ★★★½☆
D: Bart Layton (The Imposter).
S: Barry Keoghan, Evan Peters, Blake Jenner, Ann Dowd, Jared Abrahamson, Udo Kier.
Deft mix of talking heads and reconstruction (the latter peopled by Hollywood up and comers). However, the end result feels a little slight. The damnation of privilege is not delved into, and the court case is barely touched upon.
