Jake Gyllenhaal's Watch trauma

Nov 12 2012, 12:05am CST | by

Jake Gyllenhaal thought filming 'End of Watch' was traumatic as he had to undergo five months of intense preparation on patrol with real Los Angeles policemen.

Jake Gyllenhaal thought filming 'End of Watch' was traumatic.
The 31-year-old heartthrob experienced scenes of extreme violence while preparing for David Ayer's harrowing new cop drama as well as undergoing five months of intense preparation on patrol with real Los Angeles policemen.
He told the Telegraph newspaper: ''Once, outside a motorcycle club, a large man had been shot up. He had about 10 bullets in him, but was cognisant and talking.
''We saw a lot of stuff, a lot of violence, and without a doubt this has had more of an impact on me on than anything I have done before.''
The 'Donnie Darko' star confessed working with writer-director David - a former LA gang member - was life-changing and says he now understands the post-traumatic stress that police officers suffer from.
Jake explained: ''It's changed things for me in so many ways, not least in how I regard the police. People talk about post-traumatic stress with soldiers coming back form war, but no one thinks about cops on patrol and what they deal with. I had no idea what these guys, or their spouses, go through.
''And also, on a personal level, making the movie transformed my view of Los Angeles. It made me fall in love with the place again.''

Nov 3 2014 9:49am CST | Source: Collider

Now playing in theaters is Nightcrawler, the stunning feature debut from writer/director Dan Gilroy.  The film centers on Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) an ambitious and morally malformed young man looking to find his fortune. When Bloom stumbles onto the world of “nightcrawlers”, film crews who capture footage of violent tragedies and sell it to the highest bidder, he finally finds his calling.  As Nina Romina, the ethic ...

Q&A: ‘Nightcrawler’s Dan And Tony Gilroy On Media Ugliness In The Digital Age

Nov 2 2014 9:59am CST | Source: Deadline

I'm surprised to be on the receiving end of questions when I get on the phone with Dan and Tony Gilroy, who with their editor brother John made Nightcrawler. This is a nightmarish wild drama that opened Friday, a savage indictment of plummeting standards and morals in journalism, personified by Jake Gyllenhaal's sleazy sociopathic hustler who makes a Sammy Glick-like rise selling footage of the car wrecks and murders we see on nightly local LA newscasts. Right off, th ...

'Nightcrawler' Director Dan Gilroy Explains the Scariest Thing About Modern News Media

Oct 31 2014 4:01pm CDT | Source: movies.com

Nightcrawler is the most intense movie you can see in a theater this Halloween night, and it's not even a horror movie. It's about a strange man named Lou (Jake Gyllenhaal, giving one of the best performances of the year) who discovers a new career path: filming grizzly crime scenes and selling the footage to local news outlets. Since Lou doesn't really relate to society the way a normal person would, he's willing to ...

Interview: ‘Nightcrawler’ Director Dan Gilroy on Manipulation and Ditching the Character Arc

Oct 31 2014 2:15pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

It’s rare to see a directorial debut that is a total home run, but that’s Nightcrawler in a nutshell. The film’s writer/director, Dan Gilroy, is not, however, some rookie who got lucky. He’s been a screenwriter for years, with credits on films like The Fall, Real Steel and The Bourne Legacy. He was the writer on Tim Burton’s aborted Superman film with Nicolas Cage. And his family is in the business, too: brother Tony has his own screenwriting career ...

Review: Dan Gilroy's 'Nightcrawler' a Creative, Clever & Creepy Thriller

Oct 31 2014 9:39am CDT | Source: First Showing

Beyond the glitz and glamour, there's a darkness surrounding Los Angeles that captivates moviegoers when it's presented in film. Writer/director Dan Gilroy understands this and realizes the darkness in its truest form with Nightcrawler, a crime drama that not only dishes on the grimiest of LA grime, but revels in it. With equal parts style, wit, and discomfort - the latter getting the slight edge, especially given th ...

Darren Bousman, Neil Marshall & More to Tell 'Tales of Halloween'

Oct 30 2014 5:26pm CDT | Source: First Showing

The offerings on the big screen for Halloween this weekend are pretty weak with the only straight-up horror film in wide release being last weekend's holdover of Ouija. But if you're looking for a fun, thrilling, crazy ride, you should definitely check out Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenhaal. However, it seems appropriate as All Hallow's Eve approaches that we get news of a holiday centric horror ...

‘Nightcrawler,’ ‘Ouija’ To Pick Over Slim Halloween Pickings: Box Office Preview

Oct 30 2014 1:05pm CDT | Source: Deadline

Halloween is typically a frightful time for the box office, but with it landing on a Friday, the big studios are avoiding the weekend like a black cat. That will leave Open Road's newcomer Nightcrawler and Universal's Ouija in its second frame to pick over the remains left by trick-or-treating parents and costume-clad weekend partiers. Likely to lead the flimsy Halloween parade is Nightcrawler, Jake Gyllenhaal's indie thriller about ...
