THE spirit of ’70s era Martin Scorsese and Paul Schraeder runs throughout Nightcrawler, a hugely impressive character-driven thriller that also boasts a smart contemporary edge.
Jake Gyllenhaal is also on sizzling form in the central role of Lou Bloom, an opportunist loner trying to make a living who stumbles upon the idea of selling TV networks on-scene footage of car crashes or crime scenes.
Given the competitive nature of the industry, as personified by Bill Paxton’s rival cameraman, Lou resorts to increasingly desperate measures to be their first and get the best shot.
