When the dusk falls on Los Angeles, the nightcrawlers come out. Roaming the streets, cameras at the ready, they outrace ambulances to get to the scene of an accident or crime first, looking to bag footage they can sell to local television stations. NIGHTCRAWLER is a gripping portrait of L.A.’s dark side from first-time director Dan Gilroy. In an awards worthy performance Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a loner and petty thief adrift in the L.A. night when he happens upon some nightcrawlers in action. Fascinated, he gets himself a cheap video camera and a police radio scanner and begins the chase. Fresh car accidents, robbery victims, home invasions – everything is fair game. But the competition is stiff: Joe Loder (Bill Paxton) is already a seasoned professional with police contacts and a reliable buyer in TV producer Nina (Rene Russo).
