Jake Gyllenhaal is one of those actors I find impressive, if not particularly appealing. He’s got a kind of weasily look that just never speaks “trustworthy” to me. In “Nightcrawler” 2014’s dark thriller about the underbelly of TV news, Gyllenhaal has found his vehicle. His Leo Bloom is disturbingly, intensely untrustworthy. He is, in fact, odious, but Gyllenhaal manages to make him completely compelling. “Nightcrawler” is one of those films you can’t take your eyes off of.
