Nightcrawler Review Part 2

That is not to take away from writer/director Dan Gilroy.  The script and screenplay were excellent.  The direction nigh flawless.  This is his first directing debut and honestly I can’t wait to see what he does next.  Given the amount of raw sewage that is pumped out of Hollywood on a weekly basis it’s very refreshing to see someone with talent get his moment to shine and not blow it.

In a normal review this is where I would say something like “for all that it did have a few problems…” and then list them in detail but I honestly can’t think of one.  If I were still doing the old stars/black holes system this film be one of the very rare zero black hole films.  The only criticism I can offer is while I enjoyed all 117 minutes immensely I honestly don’t feel any need to go back and see it a second time.  I don’t think there will be anything to gain from a second theater viewing and will be happy to watch it on a couch at movie night.  I felt the same way about Argo (another film I verbally orgasmed about) whereas certain movies (Guardians of the Galaxy) keep sucking me back into the cinema.

Horror Movie T-ShirtsI’d like to offer one more comment and that is how much I enjoy seeing Bill Paxton in films like this.  I’m sure everyone remembers him as either Hudson from Aliens (“Game over, man! Game over!”  Image courtesy of the horror movie t-shirts category) or Chet from Weird Science (“How about a nice greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ashtray?” but I became a fan when he played Severen in the greatest vampire movie of all time, Near Dark (basically white trash vampires with guns.  “I hate ’em when they ain’t been shaved.”)
