The most damning portrayal of the media since Network, Nightcrawler will show you the grimy underbelly of the news industry.

Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) is ambitious, amoral and desperate for a job, so becomes a "nightcrawler". Someone who trawls around in the night for the most horrific murders; the most shocking carnage, and the bloodiest accidents, in order to film them and sell to the local news stations, who in turn sell fear to viewers.

After watching this film, you'll wonder what you can believe.
