Plot: When Louis Bloom, a driven man desperate for work, muscles into the world of L.A. crime journalism, he blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story. Aiding him in his effort is Nina, a TV-news veteran.
A deliciously wicked mix of Network and Taxi Driver, Dan Gilroy’s feature directorial debut was a shot of adrenaline to the fall 2014 movie season and it’s destined to age well over time. Jake Gyllenhaal is unforgettable as an ambitious sociopath who takes up a job as a stringer—a freelance cameraman who captures footage of wrecks, arrests, etc. and sells it to local news stations for their morning coverage. Cinematographer Robert Elswit captures Los Angeles like we’ve never seen it before, and Gilroy covers the arc of Gyllenhaal’s Louis Bloom with an intensity and curiosity that almost makes you like the guy. Dark, biting, and dare I say kind of thrilling? Nightcrawler is one of the best films of the past decade. –Adam Chitwood
