Nightcrawler (on DVD)

[DVD Nightcrawler]

Lou Bloom - played by Jake Gyllenhaal - decides to try out crime journalism and purchases a camera and police scanner. After his first story he's addicted and soon blurs the line between reporting and participating. Gyllenhaal was great in this role, totally transformed himself to fit the character. Very intense storyline, somewhat graphic at times, but worth the watch. -- recommended by Carrie K. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Carrie's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]

[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try All The President's Men, Zodiac, and other movies about journalists.]
