Nightcrawler - Movie Synopsis & Plot

"Nightcrawler" is a pulse-pounding 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 thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.

MOVIE REVIEW

Sociopaths. Fascinating creatures they are. People who are literally devoid of emotion, pleased by whatever pleases them with no regard for the implications or affects on those around them. Fascinating creatures. And Jake Gyllenhaal plays one with amazing precision in Nightcrawler, an immersive, engaging and unique drama-thriller that is among the year’s best movies.
