Out of work and getting desperate, fast-talking thief Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) learns there's money to be made as a freelance videographer, shooting horrific, gruesome footage and selling it to a local L.A. TV news station. As Bloom immerses himself in a seedy world where violence and tragedy lead to big ratings, he begins manipulating crime scenes─and crimes─in order to maximize the carnage. Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed, and Bill Paxton co-star in this dark look at modern media. 118 min.
