CURRENTLY WATCHING : NIGHTCRAWLER on NetFlix

nightcrawler_ver3_xlg


Horrendous, disturbing, and brillant. A biting and horrific indictment as well as pitch dark satire of the 24 hour news cycle, and selling horror as an American pastime, and the rise of dysfunctional people in a dysfunctional society.

The direction by Dan Gilroy is stellar, but what really amazes is the performance of Jake Gyllenhaal. Gyllenhaal is absoultely atounding. You can not take your eyes off his haunted, emaciated face. His performance is the stuff of awards.

This film, NICGHTCRAWLER, written and directed by Dan Gilroy is a masterful debut. The calling card of not a Director to watch, but a seasoned professional at the height of his powers. Highly Recommended.
