NIGHTCRAWLER (Dan Gilroy, 2014)
I don't want to explain anything about this one because I think it's best to go in clean like I did. But suffice to say it is very dark and quite perfect and you should see it.
It's amazingly assured for a first film, but writer/director Dan Gilroy is 55 years old and has been in the business in some capacity since co-writing the awful (I liked it when I was a kid though) Emilio Estevez sci-fi picture Freejack in 1992. Check that one for some fine shitty acting by Mick Jagger. Anyway, I'm glad he finally got around to directing a film. I can't wait to see what he does next.
