October 2, 1988: just another ordinary day in the life of teenage Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal). Suddenly, an outrageous accident occurs, just missing killing Donnie.

2014, Open Road Films, 117 min, USA, Dir: Dan Gilroy

Veteran screenwriter Dan Gilroy makes his directorial debut with this gritty nocturnal thriller. What paparazzi are to celebrities, Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal, who dropped nearly 30 pounds for the role) is to crime and accident victims, racing through Los Angeles with a video camera for gory scenes he can sell to a local TV news producer (Rene Russo). In his quest to be first with the most sensational footage, Bloom moves from cutting a few journalistic corners to increasingly dangerous risks. Bill Paxton costars.
