SCREW THAT NARCISSISTIC SOCIOPATHIC WHEELER DEALER LOU!
After rewatch, Jake still remains as my perfect sociopath (those eyes). And while he’s indeed very demented, every time he goes into his elaborate soliloquy, I couldn’t help but imagine “this guy would provide superior advice on tips for job interviews.” He has all the calculative moves and would be a brilliant sales guy.
Brilliant cinematography from Elswit who shot Los Angeles from a low vantage point since LA doesn't have many skyscrapers. Great long distance shots where you can see downtown, and the mountains far in the distance. I think the city of LA deserves a trophy for best supporting role nomination!
Years ago I read that "nightcrawling" is a real practice in Los Angeles, and Jake just proved himself time and time again as the most outstanding and creepiest Nightcrawler!
