Nightcrawler Review - 3½ Stars
Don’t get hung up on the specifics of “Nightcrawler”. Jake Gyllenhaal plays a midnight to dawn blood and guts cameraman who finds a station willing to run the most horrific crime footage for money. Jake meets his match in Rene Russo an ambitious producer with a blood thirst for success The material shown on the local newscast goes way beyond reality but that’s not the point. Really “Nightcrawler” is a horror movie about success and ethics. Jake Gyllenhaal gives a jaw dropping performance. This one’s a stunner. DoeS it deliver what it promises? Jaw dropping drama. Is it entertaining? Like watching a car crash. Is it worth the price of admission? Another must see.
