Shot by Stephen McCoy over five years, Nightcrawlers is a ground-level look at homelessness and addiction. McCoy—who ended up both homeless and addicted to heroin while making the documentary—offers no commentary, no Freudian causality, and no solutions. Instead, he simply watches others and himself. That would be enough, but Luc Benson’s stream-of-consciousness editing is what makes Nightcrawlers soar. Rarely has depravity been presented this bluntly—and poetically. Now streaming on fuboTV.
