A FILM is either appreciated for its storyline and entertainment value or for its artistic value – sometimes even both.

With the entertainment value gone out the window, The Nightcrawler left me feeling confused at whether I had seen something which should be appreciated for its artistic value or not.

The Nightcrawler trailerThe storyline follows Louis (Jake Gyllenhaal), who starts his own freelance news video business.

He spends his nights listening to the police scanner and driving out to different crimes to gather footage for the morning news.

Louis does not let anything stand in his way of getting the footage and more often than not, alters the scenes to get the ideal shot.

It depicts the stereotypical and disliked face of journalism which crosses too many boundaries when it comes to privacy and crime scenes – a face which throughout my time in the industry I am happy to say I have not seen.

Louis can be likened to a paparazzo but for crime scenes; he is in everyone’s face with his camera – whether it is the emergency services or the victims – and he shows no remorse for it.

He constantly speaks about professionalism, yet all the audience sees is Louis being anything but, acting on only selfish means.

And as his news video business quickly grows, so does his need for power.

It is clear from the moment the film starts that Louis is a manipulative person.

Combine this with his new found power – whether it is owning the key footage the news station needs or being the only person to employ Rick (Riz Ahmed), who has spent his life couch surfing – Louis sees himself as unstoppable in the business world.

I’m not sure if The Nightcrawler was trying to make a statement about the media, but if it is I feel as if this is a distorted one.

As for whether it holds any artistic value, I feel like it fell short of this.

Art is meant to break the barriers and redefine the artform in some way or another.

I did not see anything new in this film about the news.
