Too many talking heads but the story is amazing!
At first I didn't want to watch it thinking it was just the same ol' story of a tough coach training a kid. This movie is not the same ol'. The story is compelling, the timing is perfect and J.K. Simmons' performance is more than deserving of his best actor award at the Golden Globes. I LOVED Boyhood, but I'm pulling for this one to win best picture at the Oscars.
Absolutely compelling. IMDb's trivia says that Gyllenhaal lost the weight to create the effect of Lou being "a hungry coyote." This was a genius decision for him as it fit the character and the film itself so perfectly. I love movies that keep me on the edge of my seat and Nightcrawler delivered with excellence.
