    ★★★

    63/100

    At some point in the future, a scene from this thing is going to pop into my head—like a Barron Trump lookalike blowing up a crawlspace filled with tarantulas and a teenage girl, or a former Vine star getting impaled through the neck by a broken wooden plank—and I'm going to think it was from a made-up movie in a random dream I had.

    ★★★★

    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.
