Movie Info

Los Angeles denizen Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) survives by scavenging and petty theft. He stumbles into a new career as a cameraman and -- armed with a camcorder and police scanner -- begins nocturnal forays across the city in search of shocking and grisly crimes. When he catches the eye of a shopworn news director (Rene Russo) who welcomes the chance to raise her station's ratings, Louis goes to increasingly greater lengths to catch the "money shot."

    I quite liked this very dark thriller. Very creepy guy and a scary look at the media.

    Jake Gyllenhaal is a force to be reckoned with, he takes crazy to a new level. The story is a lot more interesting, although it could have been shot better. It is a daunting subject matter, that will have you continue to think after it is over.

    Some will try to confine this blazing hot social commentary to the realm of media news, but that is shortsightedness to a high degree in the dawn of the internet saturation age. Kudos to all involved. I hope there were Academy Awards, particularly to the director, screenwriters, actor and actress. Zounds, what a ride!

    Gyllenhaal is terrifying as night time crime camera man. He takes the film through a slower middle part, but overall the movie always works: as acid social commentary on media and lack of empathy. The atmosphere of the hot LA nights is almost physically perceptible and the solution after a really thrilling final act is bone chilling.
