Six Jake Gyllenhaal Movies You Can Stream Right Now

Jake Gyllenhaal has been in the industry for decades now and is easily one of the most recognizable and in-demand industry players in the industry today. Gyllenhaal currently has at least a dozen future projects confirmed to be separate from her, as well as his last offshoot continuing executive production under his banner Nine Stories. If you, like many others, find yourself wanting to see more of the movies Gyllenhaal has had her hand, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorites that you can find across various streaming services right now with a subscription.

Leila the animals – Netflix

First of all, let me start by saying that Abel Korzeniowski has really put together a masterpiece by the degree of this movie. Moving on from it (it had to be said), nocturnal animals It is a multi-layered dream of a psychological thriller that manages to capture the attention of its audience for the duration and end that will stay with you for longer than you care to admit. In the film, the idyllic life of a successful art gallery owner in Los Angeles is scarred by the constant travel of her semi-absentee second husband. While he is away again, he is surprised by the arrival of a manuscript written by her first estranged husband (Gyllenhaal). The manuscript tells the story of a teacher whose vacation with his family quickly turns into a nightmare. As Susan reads the book, this forces her to confront her past and confront some dark truths. The film shatters traditional romantic anthologies, consistently delivers stunning visuals, and at times will leave you completely confused with its original premise and flawless execution.

This is certainly the most emotional performance of Gyllenhaal’s career. Presenting two separate but similar characters who are both very emotional and complex in their own way, Gyllenhaal is truly one of the few actors who can portray two completely different characters and yet still look so alike. I recommend googling and sticking to the trigger warnings appropriate for this particular movie, since there are a lot of dark themes and therefore some difficult scenes to get into.

if nocturnal animals It wasn’t baffling enough for you and you want to watch another Gyllenhaal project that will leave you even more confused as the plot unfolds, then prisoners It’s just the right movie for you. Keeler Dover faces a reality no parent wants to be away from when his 6-year-old daughter and her friend vanish straight from their neighborhood, the only pioneer being an old mobile home parked on their street at the time. Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), the head of the investigation, arrests the motorhome driver but the lack of evidence forces Loki to release the only suspect. Dover, knowing his daughter’s life was at stake, decided to take matters into his own hands. Not only did Gyllenhaal see himself as the cynical and intelligent detective Loki, but she also got great offers from Paul Dano in the movie as Alex (the motorhome driver, of course) and Hugh Jackman (Keller Dover).

Velvet Buzzsaw – Netflix

If you sense the subject of Gyllenhaal starring in very confusing films, you are absolutely right. The latest recent entry to the ever-growing list of silly (I say it in the best way) movies he’s starred in is velvet saw buzz, as a terrifying (and confusing) chain of events unfolds. After discovering paintings by an unknown artist, a supernatural force takes revenge on the “artists” who let their greed and selfishness get in the way of art. Depending on the plot, you’d probably get into this movie expecting to be scared, or at least to experience some kind of deep, deep lesson to learn, but let me just tell you: it’s not that serious. If you were expecting to see a silly, drama-filled movie with a moderate amount of blood, you might actually find yourself entertained by this wonderful cast, including Gyllenhaal as the awful Morph.

night crawler – Netflix

Hollywood Classic Entertainment

This isn’t necessarily confusing, but it’s weird, so it fits the topic here. Gyllenhaal was completely denied an Academy Award for his performance in night crawlerThis is certainly not a controversial statement. Los Angeles native Louis Bloom (Gyllenhaal) lives by trash and petty theft – it’s a very charming lifestyle. After stumbling upon a new career as a photographer where we hope he won’t have to starve anymore, he starts late night forays around town armed with a police camera and scanner in hopes of witnessing horrific and gruesome crimes. As it turns out, wanting to expose yourself to an insane amount of danger is a great way to get the attention of a news director looking to boost her station’s rating. Lewis goes to very dangerous lengths which can happen when he is unable to let go of the thrill of the chase and is desperate to get the perfect shot of the station and his fan. night crawler Nervous in all the ways you wish a thriller story could be, it takes on some of the worst parts of modern news culture and capitalism, and overall provides an amazing, in-depth film.

This is widely considered to be a defining role for Gyllenhaal’s career, and it’s hard to disagree when you watch the dedication, passion, and depth that he brings to the role. It’s not often that audiences completely and utterly despise a character from the very first moment they enter the film, but this expert portrayal from Gyllenhaal provides a rare character with absolutely no redeemable qualities.

comet – Netflix

One of Gyllenhaal’s recent shows, impressively filmed with minimal character acting on an 11-day schedule, is one of his most exciting to date. at cometGyllenhaal stars Joe Baylor, a California detective facing a recent demoting to a 911 operator. Joe nearly misses an opportunity to help a kidnapped woman when he flirts with another phone call on his shift — but staying on the line has consequences, too. Joe must juggle incoming calls, figure out how to locate and rescue the woman, and connect with the woman’s child who is left alone at home. While Joe tries to salvage the situation, he must also avoid a Los Angeles Times reporter who seems eager to speak with the detective—perhaps about this latest cut. Gyllenhaal expertly conveys the sense of panic any of us might experience in a situation like this.

Donnie Darko – HBO Max

Newmarket movies

And now it’s probably the strangest movie of them all under Gyllenhaal’s acting biography: Donnie Darko. This movie is a cult classic for a reason, and is simply a movie that you should watch at least once in a life. No, it doesn’t really make sense – but really, when do movies that involve time travel make sense? In the movie, a teenager named Donnie Darko walks out of his house one night and sees a giant, demonic-looking rabbit named Frank. If that wasn’t worrisome enough already, Frank tells Donny that the world will end in 28 days – Halloween. Donnie comes home to find that a jet engine has crashed into his bedroom. Does Donnie live in a parallel world, does he suffer from mental illness – or does the world really end? Imbued with teen angst and sarcasm, Donnie is one of Gyllenhaal’s previous shows and is definitely one of our favorites. Plus, a great bonus is seeing Donnie’s sister play Maggie, Gyllenhaal’s real-life sister.
