“Nightcrawler” (2014)

While the film’s satire of news media and the inherent sensationalism within it may not be anything all that new or earth-shattering, this film’s execution of its message makes it stand out. A lot of what makes this film work is all because of Jake Gyllenhaal, as he gives a remarkable and chilling performance as Lou Bloom, one of the most terrifying movie characters of the 2010s. On top of that, the film’s script is intelligent, the film is effortlessly paced, and the climax is incredible and impossible to tear your eyes away.
