I was so happy when this came up as Trending on Pinterest. If you haven't seen Nightcrawler, run to your nearest theater. The movie didn't get nominated at the 87th Annual Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Robbed Awards (aka the Oscars), but it's a great study of his acting skills and our "if it bleeds, it leads" culture. It's scary and funny and twisted and you have to see it.
'Zodiac' is the best example of how the Oscars overlook movies released before September. A movie based on a true story that transports viewers to 1970s San Francisco and makes them feel the obsession of those hunting the Zodiac Killer as well as the fear which gripped the city. A David Fincher Classic.
