  1. I wondered about that as well, cigarjoe. Here is how I rationalized it:

    we don't know how much time has elapsed. Maybe there should have been a montage  :)

    his video skill are quite sophisticated by the time he gets the Dodge Challenger

    we know that Bloom has an obsessive personality once he sets his mind on a goal. I can see him watching movies with car chases then going out and practicing.


    I did wonder at the color. It seems like Bloom would have chosen something less conspicuous than red.

  2. I watched Nightcrawler on Netflix last night. It is a terrific piece of neo-noir staring Jake Gyllenhaal as a low life hustler who stumbles into the world of stringers who monitor police-band radio for horrific (fatal automobile accidents, shootings, etc) events and sell the video footage to tv studios. Gyllenhaal is wonderful as Lou Bloom, a guy who's approach to life comes from on-line courses he takes. Once he decides that this is what he is meant to do, we see him learn the trade, getting more and more sophisticated. I credit this course enabling letting me see this film with a more critical eye. I know I'm to see it several times.
