Jake did a great job acting and incredibly disturbing character, but I can't help feeling a bit angry that there was no commupance for Louis. Yes he was clever and played the game with no moral code but I need a soul-shower. Good story, pace and real inception level 'vant stop watching the car-crash' of the story unfold about how there's demand of people to wanting to watch the car crash.

I remember really enjoying this one, need to rewatch to update the rating if needed, you will not recognise Jake in this!!! What a method actor he is! Unbelievable
Update: watched it again tonight and I was right, this movie is a 10 on 10

I think Jake Gyllenhaal played so so well as this character! The plot was also very interesting and nothing I’ve seen before, but still quite predictable 🤨 and I think it got a little long in the middle
Question to anyone who might know: does this industry exist in real a life? I guess with like paparazzis but also for like crime stuff?

Great movie! Puts you on the edge of your seat. It is slow paced in the beginning but it picks up pretty quick. Jake Gyllenhaal did an incredible job as being clever and creepy.

Very well made and thought through film. Some very gripping and engaging scenes which make the film memorable. E. G: the climax and the house recording after home invasion. Crazy stuff.
Theres one thing that I have about this movie which makes it an 8 and not a 9 for me. The opening scene. The guy straight up just kidnaps a cop and that is just never revisited again. Not once in the whole 2 hour length. I kept coming up with scenarios in my head throughout of how the opening would link to whichever bit I was in the film but it never happened.
Jake gyllenhall delivers an outstanding performance as a textbook sociopathic, success crazed lunatic which you learn as the films go on.
I probably would never watch this film again unless maybe its on TV or something I don't know. Very interesting film - 8/10

This film was not at all what I expected going into it, but the performance of Jake Gyllenhaal absolutely blew me away. The lengths to which his character goes in order to become “someone” is insane. His relationships with other people is very strange and very similar to a serial killer.
Jake Gyllenhaal is extremely convincing in this role, and I love the combination of a thriller with dark satire, and the commentary the movie makes as well.
