Jake Gyllenhaal is really creepy. He inhabits Nightcrawler's Lou Bloom, spouting moronic self-help platitudes and shopworn organizational nostrums like a broken pipe gushing effluent into the stream of our culture.

The news media is a frightening place proven to provide the maximum audience draw in its time slot. When I watched Jake Gyllenhaal's performance, I got that familiar queasy feeling, which to me signaled success for a film that aims at full immersion into this sordid world.

This journey into a bleak world not fathomed before is intriguing, unnerving and haunting. You'll walk out of the theater feeling like you need to go home to shower and scrub this film off your skin.

It's hard to write something significant, and harder still to find the performer who can then make those ideas uniquely his own. Jake Gyllenhaal gives the performance of his career, and that's saying a lot in the overhyped world of Hollywood, but it is nonetheless true.
