“End of Watch” Movie Review – Why I Love This Film! 


Watching “End of Watch” was one of my many highlights at the Toronto International Film Festival. And interviewing the cast and writer/director David Ayer ("Training Day" screenwriter) sealed the deal! “End of Watch” is gripping and intriguing, and will not let go until you’re out of breath.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena star as rookie LAPD cops assigned to serve and protect the streets of South Central, Los Angeles. Following their every move is Gyllenhaal’s character’s video camera documenting their various missions. Anna Kendrick and Natalie Msrtinez co-star.

Jake Gyllenhaal Talks About “End of Watch,” and Dancing! 


Okay, here’s the unabashed truth – my new man crush is Jake Gyllenhaal! Sorry for jumping on the bandwagon a bit late, but I had to meet him first prior to declaring my love for the actor! Well, I met him at the Toronto International Film Festival for his fantastic film “End of Watch,” and boy, I fell in love, not just with Gyllenhaal but with the movie! It rocks!

In the film, Gyllenhaal stars as Brian Taylor, a new officer assigned in South Central L.A. Together with his partner, Mike Zavala (Michael Pena), the duo ventured into the wild streets of LA to serve and protect. Honestly? I’ve never felt this intense watching a movie since “Silence of the Lambs!”

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Before starting my interview, I told him I was wonderfully blessed – watch his face lit up!
*** When he first read the script, what did he think?
*** How he developed his palpable chemistry with Michael Pena?
*** The multiple camera technique used in the film
*** His dancing in the film to Push It!

Have fun!

This film is riveting! One of the best films of 2012! In this interview, we talked about:

*** His interest in making “End of Watch”
*** What he did when he failed his audition to be in the movie
*** How he found his character
*** Working with Jake Gyllenhaal and creating a palpable chemistry with him
