Nightcrawler (2014)

Gyllenhaal is brilliant here in showcasing the unnerving intensity and disturbing drive of the fascinating Lou Bloom, a character undoubtedly the highlight of the film. Its portrayal of the oft-seedy world of crime journalism that Lou dives into is also captivating, however, and is complimented nicely by excellent music and cinematography. Although the non-confrontational ending feels a bit anti-climatic, the whole of this wonderfully creepy film makes up for it.

8.7/10
