Nightcrawler – Review

In the world of Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler, humanity can be sacrificed at an altar of professionalism. In exchange, for compassion and decency, someone like Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) can be granted excellent negotiating skills, a generic, corporate vocabulary filled with [...]
