Long Story Short:
Based on a novel by Barbara Vine, No Night is Too Long tells the story of young and handsome college student Tim Cornish, who is used to getting what or whoever he wants, but at the same time he isn’t really sure what he is looking for. He never sticks with his acquaintances for too long, who he usually ends up leaving brokenhearted, and finds himself moving on to the next one without any hard feelings or regrets. But this changes when he meets Dr. Ivo Steadman, who lectures paleontology at his college.
I wasn’t expecting much from this film since there hasn’t been a convincing gay- themed thriller out so far, but it was outstanding. The movie starts very odd, then slowly soaks you in to its fascinating story, and keeps you guessing until the very end. At no point are you aware of what’s really going on. The actors are amazing, Lee Williams is this beautiful young man, who is troubled by his incapability of falling in love, and Marc Warren is the man whose love for Tim turns into mad obsession. However, there is so much more to the story, which is hard to explain without giving anything away. The cinematography is beautiful, very detailed, and the picture is very dark which sets the perfect mood for this very suspenseful movie.
No Night is Too Long is a tale of obsession, confusion, betrayal, destruction and murder.
I would recommend NOT TO WATCH THE TRAILER because it gives away way too much and I am so glad I haven’t heard or seen anything about this movie when I started watching it, so you should do the same!
