Nightcrawler is a powerful but creepy & weird film

While the Hunger Games: Mockingjay is heating things up the past week or so in movieland, there is another movie that shouldn’t go by without notice: Jake Gyllenhaal’s new film, Nightcrawler.
It’s easy to see why this film may have gone unnoticed by the general public. The first most obvious reason being no advertisement for it. However, Nightcrawler could easily pass by as one of 2014’s most powerful films, despite its intense weird & creepy feelings that go deeper as the film progresses.
The film centers on Jake Gyllenhaal’s character, who is a night time film camera guy in Los Angeles. Jack Gyllenhaal delivers one of the best performances of his career, and he captures you within the first ten minutes of the movie that never gets bored or tiresome. In fact, the film is just the opposite-sleek, thrilling and gravely dark, Nightcrawler is a film that’s by far not for children, but offers a realistic glimpse of today’s night life in Los Angeles. The general tone of the movie fits in with the character its based on, and some of the other actors in the film do a decent job adding their weight as well.
It’s one of the better films of 2014 and movie goers that are looking for something beyond your average holiday block buster won’t be disappointed.
