Blu-ray Release: Nightcrawler

February 10, 2015

Nightcrawler Blu-rayToday, Elevation Pictures is releasing the great Nightcrawler on Blu-ray.  Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a small time thief who discovers the competitive world of freelance crime journalism, filming various emergencies and selling his unflinching footage to a local TV station.  There he meets Nina (Rene Russo), a cutthroat news director equally willing to step over the moral line in order to make the headlines.

I’ve already written a lot about Nightcrawler, and put the film high up on my list of the best movies of 2014, so at this point my only advice is just to go and get the Blu-ray.  With a mesmerizing performance from Jake Gyllenhaal, this is an exhilarating and thought provoking thriller, that offers a searing indictment of violence in the media through the Oscar-nominated screenplay.  My full review is right here.

The Blu-ray includes commentary with director Dan Gilroy and a “making of” featurette.

Nightcrawler is 117 minutes and rated 14A.
