Nightcrawler ★★★★½

everyone is saying this but i’ll say it again— where is jake gyllenhaal’s oscar for this? 

when an astonishing film. nightcrawler explores society’s desire for entertainment and how that often clashes with ethics and morality in such a captivating way. it’s so twisted and disturbing, yet you can’t look away. 

needless to say, jake gyllenhaal’s performance definitely sells this entire movie. i’m so amazed at how he can make his eyes look so sunken and soulless. however, the dialogue, cinematography and directing were all phenomenal in this film. it all played such a massive role in making this movie so gripping and compelling. 

half a star off for what they did to rick tho </3
