    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers."

nightcrawler film review

hr_Nightcrawler_6Nightcrawler is not for the faint of heart. It’s a film for those of you who love true crime. I mean really love it. Love the suspense, love the gore, love the shock, love the twisted nature of it, and are always left wanting more. This movie is incredibly twisted, but in such a way that the sociopathetic tendencies of the main character are considered almost comical. In a dark humour sort of way, that is. You find yourself laughing all the way through the film, if not because his actions are so unbelievable, but because they are so believable that you do it as a coping mechanism. 

While the film is obviously fiction, it is shot more like a documentary. Consequently, that makes the events that occur feel much more intense and realistic. As the movie progresses, your involvement in the storyline also deepens. By the end of the film, you’re on the edge of your seat with anticipation. It’s nothing short of amazing.

If I were you, I would be running to the theatre to catch Nightcrawler on the big screen. That is, if you like real life crime stories. If you don’t, go and see it anyway.

Have a great week!

  1. Lovely review! Solid film although I think my expectations were a little too high. That shot of gyllenhaal when that guy was being carried into the ambulance was horrifying! Can you imagine what he was like as a child? I was really interested how he stirred the conversation away from where he grew up during that dinner scene.
