Academy Award®-nominated film,Nightcrawler, stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Bill Paxton and Riz Ahmed. The album features score by eight-time Academy Award®-nominated composer James Newton Howard! Why Nightcrawler should be added to your vinyl collection: the score plays a very prominent role in the film, informing on the perspective of the deliciously dark protagonist, “Lou Bloom” (Gyllenhaal), the sociopathic cameraman.
But the goal was to use music see the scene from Lou’s eyes — that is, as a moment of great possibility for his career. “It really becomes an anthem of potential for his tremendous success,” Mr. Howard said. A more triumphant feel was in order.
“I think people could take that as an intentional miscue, but it really isn’t,” he said. “It was designed to orient people into understanding where he’s coming from as a character. And I think it’s key to the success of the score in the movie. – New York Times/Carpetbagger Blog

From blockbusters (“The Hunger Games”) to indies (“Parkland”), Mr. Howard is always looking for a fresh challenge. He got one with Dan Gilroy’s feature “Nightcrawler,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal as an obsessive freelance news videographer who will do most anything to obtain footage of crime scenes and accidents.

So, rather than only scoring the film, he got inside the mind of the sociopath to score the lead character. Read the full interview at New York Times.
