There’s a poster for Nightcrawler, the upcoming film in which Jake Gyllenhaal plays a sleazy freelance new camera man, and it’s pretty simple but also pretty perfect. Let’s take a look!
I’ve heard basically nothing about _Nightcrawler_ outside of the fact that Jake Gyllenhaal has potentially given one of the best performances of the year and his career. That’s enough to get me in a seat 31st October when the movie comes out.
> NIGHTCRAWLER is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.
