nightcrawlerJake Gyllenhaal was nominated for a shitload of awards for Nightcrawler – BAFTA, SAG, Golden Globe, AFI, but not an Oscar. The only nomination Nightcrawler garnered was Best Original Screenplay for writer/director Dan Gilroy. Interesting aside – Gilroy’s been married for over 20 years to Gyllenhaal’s co-star Rene Russo. Nightcrawler was spooky and creepy given the fact people really do follow disasters for a living – to film them and sell the footage to news stations and sites online. Jake was solid as the demented Lou Bloom. He lost a ton of weight for the role. Rene was decent as the news director who not only buys his stuff, but gets turned on the more he crosses the ethics line. Amazing we live in a world where this actually exists. Frightening actually. 3 out of 5 for Nightcrawler.
