Review: Nightcrawler, 2014, dir. Dan Gilroy


“Meet Lou Bloom. He’s a young, ambitious go-getter, a diehard professional always on the lookout for good career opportunities that offer plenty of upward mobility. He’s also a charming psychopath, which is a nice way of saying that he’s a snake wrapped up in Jake Gyllenhaal’s clothing. Lou is a passionate man, but he’s passionate for one thing only, and over the course of Nightcrawler, Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut, you’ll find out exactly what that is. Be warned, though, that by the time the film ends, you may find yourself wishing you could forget his leering, bug-eyed visage and dismiss his superficial graces.” – Via Movie Mezzanine
