Jake Gyllenhaal delivers one of the best performances of his career in Nightcrawler, a dramatic thriller from writer/director Dan Gilroy. And in this video courtesy of Open Road Films, Gyllenhaal talks about being able to deliver Gilroy’s dialogue and how that was actually his favorite part of making Nightcrawler. Gyllenhaal also discussed the film’s social commentary and a specific scene in which he breaks a mirror.
Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou blurs the line between observer and participant to become the star of his own story.
