Roman J. Israel, Esq. Dan Gilroy. 2017. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Enigmatic. If Nightcrawler is an anti-capitalist sledgehammer.. this is a.. ??? Not quite sure. But they feel connected. Nightcrawler is villain thriving in our fucked society, Roman J is hero's struggle. The thesis = freedom and dignity don't exist and EVERYONE is complicit in this state of affairs. This bleak vision resonates w/ me more than similar-ish movies that are, in the end, nothing more than redemptive pap.
