11 Best Nightcrawler Quotes: Jake Gyllenhaal Asks, “Who Am I?”

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Nightcrawler scored at the box office this past weekend and it’s easy to see why.

It’s a stunning film that has given Jake Gyllenhaal the best role of his career. We would not be surprised if he wins an Oscar -- he will at least be nominated, that much is guaranteed.

His performance is a hurricane of power, and he utters fantastic movie quotes like bullets coming out of a machine gun.

Gyllenhaal’s Lou is well studied, and self taught, and believes everything he says to his core. And that comes through with a power that is rarely seen in our lead characters of late.

It’s hard to narrow down the best Nightcrawler quotes because every word in this flick is priceless.

But click through and discover our 11 best Nightcrawler quotes as we managed to find a little more than a handful that we can truly call the “best!”

Don’t miss our Jake Gyllenhaal exclusive interview where he takes us inside the making of Nightcrawler, and see another great LA-based Gyllenhaal movie and watch End of Watch online.

As he told us in our interview, that movie played a huge part in the making of Nightcrawler!

Nightcrawler Quotes

I'm looking for a job. In fact, I've made up my mind to find a career that I can learn and grow into. Who am I? I'm a hard worker. I set high goals and I've been told that I'm persistent. And I'm thinking, television news might just be something that I love as well as something I happen to be good at. Now I know that today's work culture no longer caters to the job loyalty that could be promised to earlier generations. But I believe that good things come to those who work their asses off and that good people who reach the top of the mountain, didn't just fall there.

What if my problem wasn't that I don't understand people but that I don't like them? What if I was the kind of person who was obliged to hurt you for this? I mean physically. I think you'd have to believe afterward, if you could, that agreeing to participate and then backing out at the critical moment was a mistake. Because that's what I'm telling you, as clearly as I can.
