This new thriller that stars Jake Gyllenhaal looks really freakin' good, and kind of disturbing. The actor seems to have taken his intensity of acting to a new level here, and I don't know if it's just me, but he has a very different and creepy look.
Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom in the story, "an ambitious young man desperate for work." While trying to find his calling in life he discovers the world of L.A. crime journalism. "When Lou learns of a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles his way into the dangerous realm of night crawling, where a police siren wail means a possible windfall, and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Nina, a local TV news veteran, Lou blurs the line between observer and participant."
The movie also stars Bill Paxton, Rene Russo, and Riz Ahmed. It's set to be released on October 31st. I will warn you, about halfway through the trailer a lot of the story is given away.
