Editorial Reviews

Nightcrawler is a thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling - where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story.

    How the Hell does Jake Gyllenhaal turn in this kind of performance and get overlooked by the Academy??? This is the kind of disassociated acting that made DeNiro a star. We all know people like this and when we see people like this we turn our backs and walk away. Great storytelling and a tight screenplay (they don't always go hand-in-hand) surround this great performance. Compelling tale of a sociopath finding his niche and taking complete and utter control of his own situation. Movie has tons of suspense, even in situations where you wouldn't normally expect it. Also, a very jaded sense of humor pervades the entire movie. The overall effect is chilling. Excellent top to bottom.

    Nightcrawler was an odd movie. I found it strange, yet strangely intriguing as well. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a bit of an odd duck who is trying to get a job. He's a bit of a loner and, while driving home one night, sees a wreck at the side of the road. A women is trapped inside a burning car while two police officers try to pull her from the vehicle before it explodes. Lou, for whatever reason, pulls over and gets out and just stands gawking at the scene. He doesn't offer to help and doesn't say anything to the police officers - just gawks and grins. (Like I said, he's a bit of an odd duck..) All of a sudden, a camera van pulls up onto the scene and two men jump out to film the rescue and wreckage. Jake seems in awe of them and asks one of the cameramen, Joe Loder (Bill Paxton), if he's hiring. Once Joe turns him down, Lou buys his own camcorder and police scanner, hires an "assistant", and starts shooting accidents himself. He begins to hone his skills while regularly selling videos to Nina (Rene Russo), a graveyard shift news director.

    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.

    Hollywood has always had a complicated relationship with the news media, and in particular freelance photographers. Studios and celebrities need them, they use them, but they also absolutely f***ing hate them. They don't stop filming when you scream 'CUT!' They get pushy and they don't believe that 'private moments' exist for movie stars or rock bands or athletes. There's no doubt that they're morally objectionable, in a way that I could never even pretend to get indignant about with a straight face. WTF do I care about George Clooney's privacy? It makes his fairly comfortable existence less so, at times, but treating it like a social concern which needs to be addressed is laughable. Should it rate higher than homelessness? As far as 'problems that don't affect me personally, but still demand a furrowed brow' are concerned, the paparazzi don't come close to making the list. 'Nightcrawler' is a brilliant film, and it takes the disgust that most stars feel for the paparazzi and extends its targeting range to include the freelance videographers who exploit not just the most painful 'perp-walk'-type moments of the rich and famous, but the everyday tragedies borne of cars and guns. It makes the viewer feel what it might be like to see their loved-one's bloody corpse on the 11 O'clock News. It also cleverly 'plays up the racism angle', as an LA news producer might say; white victims in affluent neighborhoods make the cut, while African-American or Hispanic victims do not. Is that still true? It might be, and I have to confess, when I finished watching 'Nightcrawler', I think I believed it. This fictional film feels more true than 99% of the scripts claiming to be 'based on a true story'.Read more ›

    "Nightcrawler" (2014 release; 118 min.) brings the story of Lou Bloom (played by Jake Gyllenhaal). As the movie opens, we see Lou involved in petty crimes, trying to make a buck and simply surviving. Then one night he sees a car crash scene on the 101 in LA, he pulls over and notices a guy shooting footage. Turns out to be a freelance camera man (played by Bill Paxton), who cruises the LA streets and freeways at night (hence "nightcrawler") and sells the footage to local TV stations for their 6 am morning newscast. Something clicks within Lou, and before we know it, he is also chasing the next bloody scene, the bloodier, the better. Lou finds a willing buyer for his footage in Nina (played by Rene Russo), the news director at the lowest rated morning news station in LA. Nina encourages Lou to find yet more extreme footage. At this point we're maybe 20 min. into the movie, but to tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

    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.
