If we can admit broadcast journalism is part voyeurism, then we can begin to understand "Nightcrawler." This movie is Jake Gyllenhaal at his best playing a role deserving of an Oscar nomination. He brilliantly portrays a character down and out on his luck who decides to make a dramatic career shift into the world of over night news. As he does, he lifts the curtain and we are allowed to see the violation that must occur in order for the story to make it to air. As he gains popularity, the lengths he will go to get a story become more drastic. This movie will leave you in a sense of shock and disbelief as the final moments play out. Voyeur is the disgusting feeling you will be left with as you exit the theatre and ride home to watch the nightly news.
Thanks for entering my world,
