Denis began his ascension to the A-List with this visceral thriller. The source material's ending is questionable, but the bravura turn from Lubna Azabal & the masterful pacing are worth the price of admission.
For it's time, it hard to imagine a film with a more controversial plot: a serial killer prowls the streets of Germany in search of his next victim which happens to be children. Chilling. A meticulous observation of a town coping with impending doom.
Phenomenal character work from Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo's best work to date & an astounding sequence leading up to a visceral car chase made Nightcrawler one of my absolutely favourite films of 2014. Criminally overlooked at the Oscars.
