Screening Of "Nightcrawler" @ DeciBel

From the organizer: In Nightcrawler, Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain) delivers his best performance to date in the role of Lou Bloom (nominated for Best Actor at the Golden Globes, at the BAFTAs and at the SAG Awards), a man so desperate to work and achieve success that he appears to have memorised every Human Resource textbook ever written.

Lou is willing to do anything and he is confident that his good work ethic and intelligence will allow him to succeed in whatever field will open its doors to him. Lou finds himself work as a ‘nightcrawler’ looking for accidents, car crashes and murders in the streets of a jaded Los Angeles. Meanwhile, he begins a work relationship with a desperate TV News executive (Rene Russo) who, for the success of her channel, is willing to go far in showing the horrific crimes that Lou records for her. First-time director Dan Gilroy patiently and cleverly builds up a crescendo through which Lou’s insanity is slowly revealed (Gilroy has been nominated for Best Screenplay at the Oscars). Nightcrawler could be seen as an investigation into the mind of its sociopathic leading character or also as an accusation towards the cunning media, whose desire to shock with brutality will stop at nothing. What is truly chilling about Gilroy’s thriller is that there is not a shred of guilt or morality behind his protagonists and their actions.
