So if Nightcrawler is not, at its core, a condemnation of the current condition of news media, what is that larger message? Gilroy's movie is about a society that has become unmoored, a society in which traditional economic and moral structures no longer function.

You would think that TV stations have a public-interest obligation to cover government, public affairs, important issues - stories citizens need to know. After all, stations owners pay nothing for the licenses the public gives them to broadcast over the airwaves the public owns. But if you believe that, you'd be wrong.

Philip David Morton

It's hard to write something significant, and harder still to find the performer who can then make those ideas uniquely his own. Jake Gyllenhaal gives the performance of his career, and that's saying a lot in the overhyped world of Hollywood, but it is nonetheless true.
