director:
Dan Gilroy
cast:
Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo

Set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles, this thriller follows Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work, as he discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. After 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 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. “Nightcrawler is pulp with a purpose. A smart, engaged film powered by an altogether remarkable performance by Jake Gyllenhaal, it is melodrama grounded in a disturbing reality, an extreme scenario that is troubling because it cuts close to the bone.” (LA Times)
