The movie does a great job of exploring the underground world of the "nightcrawler", as these freelance cameramen are called. It was a nitty gritty film, but also pretty comedic. Jake Gyllenhaal did an amazing job in his role. I empathized with his character because he just seemed so alone and was trying so hard at times, yet he was just so weird and off the mark. At times he was a jerk and creepy, while other times he seemed overeager and simply lacking in social skills.
It's hard to describe what's so odd about this movie, other than Lou himself. Again, even though I found the movie a bit weird at times, I also thought it was fast-paced and really entertaining. It pulled me in, and even a week later, I'm still thinking about the movie.
Couple of comments: first, this is the feature length debut from director Dan Gilroy (Mr. Rene Russo in the real world), who also wrote the script. Gilroy tackles a number of topics, including the never-ending thirst of TV news for ever bigger ratings, and what people will do within that system to get it (hint: almost anything). I couldn't help but think of the 1976 movie "Network" in certain points of "Nightcrawler". Second, Gyllenhaal plays the role of loner Lou Bloom with a ferocity and intensity (seemingly at times with bugged eyes) that will blow you away. Gilroy sets up Gyllenhaal's character such that you go back and forth wanting to root for him, yet being shocked/repulsed at the character's coldness and aloofness at the same time.Read more ›
