Nightcrawler is tense and appalling, yet strangely funny, intriguing and engaging at the same time. Watch it.
October 25, 2017
Nightcrawler [works] as a stylish and exciting thriller.
October 18, 2017
This is a performance for the film history books, and one that Gyllenhaal inhabits totally.
August 17, 2017
[Jake] Gyllenhaal is mesmerizing as the ruthlessly ambitious Bloom.
August 14, 2017
Most of all, Nightcrawler is a fine thriller and a great showcase for [Jake] Gyllenhaal's talent, wit, and comic timing.
March 7, 2017
Intriguing, unnerving and haunting.
September 26, 2016
Nightcrawler, on its surface, is a relatively straightforward thriller, built around a slightly improbable but very effective main character, a man who starts as an antihero and plunges straight ahead toward villainy.
July 14, 2016
What's fascinating about this movie is the way in which writer/director Dan Gilroy treats Bloom. He's framed as a regular cinematic hero rather than a devious anti-hero.
May 31, 2016
Even if Gyllenhaal's Bloom doesn't entirely resonate, Nightcrawler is still an amusing, menacing and entertaining film.

"Lou Bloom" is one of the most memorable characters I've seen in years. [Full review in Spanish]
April 15, 2016
Sinister and upsetting and strangely magnetic - as the best movie monsters are - Gyllenhaal rises above the intermittently pedestrian screenplay.
March 1, 2016
Written crisply, directed unapologetically and acted brutally, Nightcrawler is one of the best films of the year.
February 27, 2016
Gyllenhaal's role overshadows the whole while also making it better.
August 11, 2015
It's a small, compact, tightly written picture, shot in richly expressionist tones by Robert Elswit and guided by an exquisitely judged lead performance.
March 14, 2015
It takes place almost entirely at night and director of photography Robert Elswit... carves out a marvelous neo-noir atmosphere of Los Angeles at night with his razor-sharp photography of the streets after dark...
February 20, 2015
In a knockout performance, Jake Gyllenhaal plays Louis Bloom, the type of guy who would not only sell his own mother but would chop her up into tiny pieces to facilitate the transaction.
February 18, 2015
The fascinating, disturbing Nightcrawler questions the line between crime reportage, and reportage that's a crime in and of itself. That is, if that line still exists at all...
February 14, 2015
An emaciated Gyllenhaal plays Louis so adroitly, he must have been always intended to have this role. He snares the audience with his character's dark charm and floors you with his inhumanity.
February 10, 2015
Jake Gyllenhaal is better than the sum of Nightcrawler's parts, but the film is still a riveting, horrific exploitation that blurs the lines between American greed and the American dream.
February 10, 2015
A gripping drama about a wily hustler who finds success as a freelance photographer of night-time car crashes and violent crimes
