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.

  2. I just watched this the other day. Agreed, such a great movie. It still creeps me out!

    He’s so cute. And I can’t wait to see Rene Russo.

  • Early morning post (before I start painting our living room walls). We viewed our first acreage in four years last month. While the outside of the property was one hundred times more appealing than the interior, it’s inspired us to see more. We’re country folk at heart- both being raised on farms and acreages. We probably will not stop until we find that piece of prairie land that whispers our names. 🌾💛 Happy birthday, husband. I’m sorry that your birthday doesn’t always go as planned. Also, transitioning from you being gone for weeks, to then being home for a few hours, only to leave again is anything but smooth at first. But know that Remy and I do love and appreciate you so much. I hope that you have a wonderful year (since we’ll probably be spending much of it apart), wherever you now are.
