Story


"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.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..why is Jake Gyllenhaal so perpetually underrated? Despite his leading-man looks, he works incredibly hard in complex and often defiantly uncommercial movies..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..the film is being marketed as a thriller, but it's more of a character piece, exploring the mindset of someone who is at best a misanthrope and at worst a sociopath..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
