Nightcrawler is a great film for all those who are a sucker for psychological thrillers with a dark theme. Jake Gyllenhaal is an absolute beast of an actor. His performance is so believable that you forget about the fiction part and genuinely start hating on him. The plot is great, and at one point I started to root for Lou Bloom (is it just me?).

10. Birdman (2014)
This is a great movie and I chose to keep it on the list since it also deals with the thought process of one person and how he views the world around him and to what extent will he go to achieve his goals. This is a must watch for all movie buffs (The film won an Academy Award for God’s sake!). The plot sees actor Riggan Thomas, famous for his role as superhero ‘Birdman’, struggling with reality as he starts to believe that he is superhuman. He is also desperately trying to establish himself as a great actor. To achieve this he is putting his entire career and live-savings online to produce a Broadway show which he directs and stars in. He runs into several issues as the story moves along. The interesting plot and amazing background score just heighten viewer experience.
