    Nightcrawler is one of the most talked about Hollywood crime thriller films of 2014. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed, and Bill Paxton, the thriller drama will keep you hooked to the screen.

    Offering dark and fast-paced twists and turns, the movie is downright thrilling till the end. Jake Gyllenhaal has completely changed his look for this thriller role in the provocative drama. Thirty pounds lighter, visible cheekbones, bulging eyes and beard, Jake surely adds density to his role.

    Jake is playing Louis Bloom who is looking for a job as a journalist on field (but he actually looks like a criminal with that scary new look). Louis Bloom doesn't get any job so he decides to open his own TV news business.

    He soon enters the world of LA crime with his investigative journalism. As a Nightcrawler, he along with some new members in his business start capturing crime scenes and film breaking stories. Louis then gives the footage to a leading news channel.

    The way Louis Bloom starts his business can motivate any layman who wishes to fulfill his dream and is hardworking. In one of the scenes when he is hiring Rick (Riz Ahmed), Rick says that he doesn't have a TV. Louis replies, "Do you have a phone?" to which Rick replies "Yes". Louis then asks "Do you have GPS?" Rick responds with a "Yes" again and Louis replies, "Congratulations! You are hired."

    While doing a filming, Louis lands up in trouble as he doesn't inform the cops of the murder that he witnessed as well as recorded. Things take a twist when Louis is asked to share the details or else he will be charged of murder.

    The movie is very thrilling and the intense roles played by stars especially Jake Gyllenhaal. Nightcrawler is a dynamic thriller with a psychological story, dark yet intense with a strong plot. It shows the contemporary journalism which is very impressive.
