Crime, Drama, Thriller
In contemporary Los Angeles, unemployed Lou Bloom stumbles across an underground world where enterprising, opportunistic cameramen descend on crime scenes, capturing real-time footage to sell to late-night news networks. In a ratings-obsessed culture, the gorier the better. Possessed by a ruthless entrepreneurial drive, Bloom increasingly blurs the line between observer and participant to capture exclusive footage. Led by a gaunt, bug-eyed Jake Gyllenhaal, the film is a satire on modern internship culture, as well as the media’s endless craving of increasingly sensationalised news footage. Nightcrawler is a riveting, urgent thriller that engages the brain every bit as much as it thoroughly entertains.
Satire of the ruthlessness of TV companies from the '70s, about a newsreader having a meltdown who is sacked, then re-hired to help ratings.
