    In Nightcrawler there are a few aspects of surveillance portrayed but they are very subtle. The first one is the use of diegetic sound that comes from the police scanner. Throughout the semester multiple films of the surveillance genre were viewed and many of them introduced a “bug” that was used to listen in on different characters of the film without them knowing. As Lou listens to the police scanner it is relatively the same as “bug”, except the police scanner only listens to police…

    Aesthetically, Nightcrawler is a beautiful film. With stunning scenery, dark, brooding cinematography and an impressive method of shooting each car chase from first-time director Dan Gilroy, the LA streets and landscape haven’t looked this impressive since Nicolas Winding-Refn’s Drive. And in terms of pacing, Nightcrawler ticks the boxes as it slowly descends from one act to an increasingly despicable other, crescendoing into a tense, fascinating, brilliantly-edited final 20 minutes that keep…
