NIGHTCRAWLER digs deep into the shadows of a news machine fueled by the morbid maxim: "If it bleeds... More

NIGHTCRAWLER digs deep into the shadows of a news machine fueled by the morbid maxim: "If it bleeds, it leads." Jake Gyllenhaal's turn as opportunistic videographer Lou Bloom is both bold and bravura, his sociopathic stare masked only by the camera he hides behind. This modern noir from writer/director Dan Gilroy illustrates the fine line between breaking news and making news, and Rene Russo is formidable as both victim and accomplice to Bloom's mesmerizing violation of all boundaries in pursuit of the dark side of an American dream.
