Film Friday: Nightcrawler

Plot: Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a man who's desperate for work and discovers the world of crime journalism. Nightcrawling involves listening in on police calls at night, and tracking down victims of crime to get to the stories first. 
Guest appearances: erm.. Ted from Mad Men pops up as one of the few 'nice guys' in the film
Watch this if you're a fan of... Taxi Driver, The King of Comedy, The Wolf of Wall Street
Overall: Although some scenes make for difficult viewing (one scene in particular was so tense I was gripping the arm of my chair!) Nightcrawler was a brilliant portrayal of 24 hour rolling news coverage in America and Gyllenhaal was excellent at playing the psychotic Lou Bloom.
