    me, less than 72 hours after graduating from high school: i should rewatch boyhood and see how it holds up for me.

    So I was able to sneak a look at the finished film, and I have to say that it is absolutely...

    ★★★★

    82/100

    Engrossing and skeevy, Nightcrawler, the directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, is an uncomfortable but obsessive and deeply fascinating look at what TV news could be under the surface of well lit sets and playful banter. Jake Gyllenhaal is spellbinding, a transformation both physical and psychological that should have been nominated for the Oscar. The rest of the cast -- like Rene Russo and Riz Ahmed -- are great. Gilroy's script is solid, but characters feel underdeveloped, although in the grand scheme of things, detachment is minimal.
