Nightcrawler is nuts

5 second review: Louis wants to make it (big-time) in life. And stealing metal scrap isn't cutting it. One day he witnesses a car crash that makes him think of filming similar stuff and selling it to news channels. He starts small and innocent, but as he gets better at what he does, he starts crossing moral and legal lines.

5 second plot: The charisma Jake Gyllenhaal brings to his character is something you don't get to see very often. He definitely went the extra mile to get this psycho right. It's an amazing performance. The story builds up slowly to an awesomely tense finale that will put you on the edge of your seat.
