Nightcrawler (2014)

Jake Gyllenhaal plays Louis Bloom, a criminal nobody who doesn't seem to have much trouble doing what he does, and yet he wants more: he's looking for a legit job! Fate leads him to the side of the highway late one night as police are tending to victims of a crash, and a cameraman runs onto the scene. For his next steal - a bike, he gets himself enough shop credit to buy a cheap camcorder and police scanner, and starts crawling the cityscape by night looking for murder.

It seems like an innocent enough beginning, but it spirals out of control quickly as the news footage becomes all the more bloody and violent, and the thin line between taping and making news starts to blur. How far is he really willing to go for good footage?

Though the main character dampens the violent tones a bit with his always so contemplative calm, that's also what make him so scary. It's an intruding; at times intense voyage that we follow Louis Bloom on, learning more and more about him as we go and as he changes. Or maybe he's the same person at the end that he was at the start of the movie? The introduction seems to offer a hint.

The action's rare, but when it's there it definitely captures your attention. Overall this was a different; refreshingly dark watch.
