Nightcrawler Review

nightcrawler2

A flighty but spectacular walk on the mean streets of the new media.Having written the screenplay for “The Bourne Legacy” and other hits, Dan Gilroy apparently decided to take the plunge and try his hand at directing. His debut with “Nightcrawler” may be one of the most spectacularly successful first efforts seen for some time. This is helped, in large measure, by the riveting performance of Jake Gyllenhaal as nebbish video news reporter Louis Bloom. Casting is critical to the success of any picture. Whether it is just coincidence that Bloom’s character fits Gyllenhaal like a glove, or whether it […]

Jake Gyllenhaal on Nightcrawler – Newsgatherer as Predator

a

Jake Gyllenhaal ‘s superb performance as a morally challenged TV news cameraman is pure minimalist intensity. His character Lou Bloom is fascinated by true crime and haunts scenes around LA.  Bloom takes his cues from the news videographers he sees vying for the most graphic footage at crime and accident sites.  He realises that taking up a camera for a local TV newsroom is  lucrative and puts him in the eye of the LA underworld.  He’ll stop at nothing to get his footage; he crosses over the professional threshold and becomes a news predator, taking what he wants, incapable of de-escalating.  […]

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As we age, lots of things go south, including the eyelids and inner waterline where the lashes grow from.The problem of blepharitis occurs more frequently as we get older, debilitating patients with a chronic and irritating array of symptoms of this treatable inflammatory lid disease and dry eye syndrome.This overgrowth of bacteria produces a gunky biofilm that traps scurf and debris along the eyelashes and harbors bacterial exotoxins along the lid margin. These exotoxins penetrate the eyelid tissue causing low-grade inflammation and itching which adversely affects the tear glands, turning down tear production. Fewer tears containing fewer antibodies allow even […]
