It's fun, it's light, [but] it has a hard time when its tries to get heavy.
There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
Nightcrawler is one of the movies that is on the blacklist of the academy for the most awesome movies that they don't appreciate it by nominating it to that number of Oscars it deserves. As for this movie it really should has been nominated for 6 more Oscars and giving a guaranteed one to Jake for his Physically, mentally and Psychologically prepared Performance with his stable reactions that gave with the scenario that both shocking and creepy feeling for the character and made it so realistic to the audience. The movie had too many things that made it look that good , In my opinion, one of them is presenting the character in it's early starts and putting him in different situations that made you both sympathetic with and shocked at him. The screenplay that was perfectly written for the character that added to it mentally and psychologically and made you feel with Jake's performance that you have just a complete character with it's lack of feelings in front of you on screen. The music of the movie was good too and makes you feel intense and excited in some scenes but it's presence lacked in the end. The story is very good and it's characters are good but some other characters weren't either written well or performed well as the female FBI agent. The character of Riz Ahmed was good and he performed it good too. The story's only problem I fell it was the sequence where we were infront of many actions and presenting the character then stopping for the big action in the end that made you feel too much lunacy and strange stable reactions and discovering his mean self that only puts his benefit at first even on other people's lives which made me a little bit bored that we are getting deeper and deeper into showing his psychopath character. Overall the movie is too good with one of the very complex protagonists. Very entertaining in most of it and of course faced injustice . Check it out. 8.5/10
Nightcrawler is a tense, dark and deeply cynical movie about a man who videotapes roadside accidents and sells them to a local news station- but this is just the gist of it. The film becomes uncomfortable at times and the entire mood is somber and nihilistic. Featuring a fantastic turn by Jake Gyllenhaal who continues to prove he is one of the finest actors of this generation and ably supported by Rene Russo and Riz Ahmed Nightcrawler is too cynical to appeal to mainstream audiences. However, if you want a compelling character study then this Dan Gilroy (his first film as a director) film is a must watch.
I didn't mind the run time and character build up. Jake G captured the nuances of a sociopath very well down to the awkward social interactions with Nina from the news network. The dynamics between Lou and Rick (two main characters) kept me interested to find out what would happen. Overall, a decent storyline regardless of how realistic it may/may not be.
Wow, what a ride this movie is. A perfect combo of drama, action, acting and great writing. One of the few times my heart beat increased watching a movie.
