"Nightcrawler" movie quotes follow the clues as one man starts his own freelance crime journalism company and soon finds himself knee deep in serious trouble. The crime thriller was written and directed by Dan Gilroy in his directorial debut. After appearing at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, "Nightcrawler" opened theatrically on October 31, 2014.

In "Nightcrawler," Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) is motivated and hard working but also painfully unemployed. A combination of a failure to find a job and a random run-in with crime scene chaser Joe Loder (Bill Paxton) gives Lou the idea to start his own freelance crime journalism company. He recruits Rick (Riz Ahmed) to help and makes a relationship with broadcast journalist Nina (Rene Russo) to hone his skills and sell his product, the most gory and graphic videos of crime scenes and accidents that he can find.

All is going well for Lou and Rick until they come upon a home invasion-murder scene before the police. They witness the culprits leaving the scene and instead of sharing their information and video evidence with police, Lou sets out on an investigation of his own. This doesn't sit well with the detectives, who wonder what Lou is hiding from them and if, in an effort to sell his prime footage, is responsible for the recent horrendous crime wave.

"Nightcrawler" is just one of several great films in theaters in the fall of 2014 including "John Wick," "White Bird in a Blizzard," "Fury," "The Best of Me," "The Book of Life," "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)," "The Judge," "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," "St. Vincent," "Gone Girl," "Men, Women & Children," "Left Behind," "The Equalizer," "Pride," "Good People," "The Boxtrolls," "This is Where I Leave You," "The Maze Runner," "A Walk Among the Tombstones," "Dolphin Tale 2," "No Good Deed," "The Skeleton Twins," and "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby."
