Jake Gyllenhaal delivers in ‘Nightcrawler’

I recently saw Jake Gyllenhaal’s new movie Nightcrawler, and I was blown away. Nightcrawler is about unemployed Lou Bloom (Gyllenhaal), who starts his own freelance video news company and does whatever he can to get the shot, even if it means committing a crime. Gyllenhaal lost a lot of weight for this role, which gives his already creepy character an odd look. Gyllenhaal also gives his best performance ever. He is absolutely brilliant as the dark and twisted Bloom and deserves an Oscar nomination. Nightcrawler also features Rene Russo (Thor) and Bill Paxton (Hatfields & McCoys). I highly recommend this movie to everyone—it is suspenseful, intense and thrilling. I give it an 8.5/10. So this weekend, get a group of friends and run to your local theater to check out Nightcrawler!
