Default 'Nightcrawler' - High-Def Digest Review

Michael S. Palmer has reviewed 'Nightcrawler'. He says this is an outstanding movie. He's written two reviews, a brief recap that's spolier-free, and a longer, more in-depth, but very spoilery look at the film. Whichever you read, this Blu-ray is highly recommended. Here's why...

Kudos for giving people the option of going into this film blind.

I finally saw it last week and it was brilliant but it was also entirely unexpected because I knew little about the plot. Itís a pleasurable experience to go into something with no expectations or spoilers and in the case of this particular film it makes that initial viewing all that more poignant and enjoyable.

Lou Bloom is one of the best cinematic characters of 2014.

Excellent review, Michael. I took your advice and only read your mini-review. You have me even more excited for this film now than before.

Hey, does this really only has english subtitles? I had pre-order it but if it doesn't has spanish subs, I'll cancel it right away and wait for a localized release.

I really dug this when I saw it in cinemas. I felt it did a great job creating a sense of realistic danger during the parts where the characters are in dangerous situations. The shoot-outs, car smashes, car chases, are mostly filmed in real time and always felt authentic and not like the action movie versions of those types of things.

The commentary on the media was good, and not so preachy that it ever overshadowed the drama. This was a really solid flick.

Brilliant movie. Easily one of the best of 2014/2015. Jake G was fantastic.
