An intelligent thriller with virtuoso cinematography and a soundtrack that evokes harrowing tension. “Nightcrawler” is a story about the dark side of the American dream, and a portrait of a man who will stop at nothing, not even major crime, to climb to the top. The protagonist, Louis Bloom, gradually transforms from a scrap metal thief into an outstandingly effective TV reporter for the most dangerous parts in Los Angeles. Bloom is played by the mesmerising and chilling Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is a disturbing dissection of contemporary capitalism, wherein conscience is a flaw and the end justifies the means.
