Movie 38: Nightcrawler

Dir: Dan Gilroy
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed...

When Louis Bloom decides to become a freelance cameraman who specializes on violent crime, he takes his trade to a new level of ruthlessness.

I tend to think Gyllenhaal is an overrated actor, but this performance is his first that impresses me.
Nightcrawler is a compelling commentary on violence in the news, and how sociopaths can thrive in such environments.
Definitely worth seeing.
