Today is a review for Nightcrawler, and no sadly not the most bad-ass X-man of all time, but still good! Nightcrawler follows Louis Bloom, played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Though you can’t even tell he is Gyllenhaal, he becomes the role to an extent I haven’t seen since Heath Ledger as The Joker! Nightcrawler follows Loius Bloom, a creepy as hell, wide eyed, self-obsessed, sociopathic, socially-absent, determined man on his road to be rich in any way possible. Bloom finds he is good at video-documenting crime in the streets of Los Angeles, so he strives to break in to the field! This man creeped the hell out of me, while watching the movie I kept thinking to myself, “Is he gonna kill that guy?!”, because he clearly is so disconnected from the world he would be OK with it. It took me months to watch this movie because it came so highly recommended, yet I knew I would have to be in the right state of mind to watch it. I was right on the money with that one! Throughout the movie Bloom keeps one-upping himself in attempts to make more money, pushing the line of what is incredibly wrong. I will not lie, this movie is beautifully directed, and amazingly acted, yet unbelievable. I don’t want to spoil anything, but most of the stuff he does in this movie he would not be able to get away with AT ALL, and the ending is bull shit (though I’ll admit I loved it, very original). All in all it was an amazing movie, but in the parts I had to suspend my belief it took me out of it.
