    Taxi Driver

    This masterpiece directed by Martin Scorsese is one of the most powerful and disturbing portrays of a man, an era, and a mentality ever made in cinema history. Besides, it's an incredible lesson of cinema, at the height of movies like The Godfather.

    "Taxi Driver is a really interesting movie. It's super old but the level of acting by De Niro here was just spectacular. I really think the plot of it was really unique too and I think many films and shows have tried to sort of copy it today but this is still really the best! Nightcrawler is somewhat similar though, and Jake was also amazing there. hehe"

    "Collateral is one of those Tom Cruise movies that you should watch if you're a fan of his. This is a bit more action-packed than Nightcrawler, but they still have that same crime thriller vibe going on for them both. Really good films these two are."

    "This is a really great film and I was honestly surprised by how well Ryan Gosling acted here! I mean, I have always watched his romcoms and other movies but this was the first time I really saw him in a different kind of setting. Really interesting and very Nightcrawlery kind of feel too but a more action-packed one. "

    "The Imitation Game was a movie I honestly only watched because Benedict and Keira were the leads. Hahaha well, I was really surprised at the caliber of acting here though when I was done watching it and there really is no surprise that this won an award at the Cannes. Haha so amazing I think it's even better than Nightcrawler just a bit (and just because of the leads hehe)"

    "Triple 9 is a film I've only watched once and for good reason to. I mean this is your average heist type of movie, but this one involves bad cops too so if you're into those types of movies, this is one to check out. "

    "Gone Girl is probably one of the most thrilling movies I have ever watched! Affleck and Pike surprised me here and I had never paid attention to them before I watched this. It's quite like Nightcrawler in its dark atmosphere, mainly, but story-wise, they are quite different. If you like NIghtcrawler though, this would be a good pick to watch next since it is just as thrilling, if not more."

    "Birdman is a movie that deserves a whole lot more awards. It is very cerebral and intense, and in that aspect, it is very much like NIghtcrawler. It goes into the psyche of the lead and really explores him and his environment. I am obsessed with this movie!"
