Quickie: Nightcrawler (2014)

3rd Viewing

The biggest American crime ever to be committed in the cinematic timeline of this decade—right next to the fabrication of The Emoji Movie—was the Academy’s neglect to nominate Jake Gyllenhaal for best actor due to his eerie, highbrow and persistent performance as, Louis Bloom, the greatest on-screen psychopath since Heath Ledger’s The Joker. To top it all off, while this near masterpiece alluded to us as, Nightcrawler, did get nominated for best screenplay, it’s plainly evident that it also, should’ve—beyond the shadow of a doubt—won back in the theatrical goldmine of 2014. 

First time director, Dan Gilroy, encapsulates the city night skies of Los Angeles spiritedly through a friendless outlook of a calamitously gruesome medium that will infect audiences around the world with trembling fear of the nefarious sides of the human spirit. (Verdict: A) 

Velvet Buzzsaw, here we go. 

This Movie is a Part of My List: The Victors of the 2010s
