Nightcrawler (2014)
Jake Gyllenhaal gives his greatest performance, in what is one of the most disturbing films of the year. It is a savage critique of the "If it bleeds it leads" adage of the news media, and is so riveting you won't be able to tear your eyes away.

One part espionage thriller, one part human drama, this is an engrossing dramatization of the genesis of computers, and the cracking of the Enigma, and manages to tackle a divisive subject while being politically neutral, that is topped by Benedict Cumberbatch's magnificent performance.
