DONNIE DARKO WITH A CAMCORDER:
Finally got around to watching Nightcrawler ... and wow. A bit like Network for the 21st century. Future Daily Mail, but for TV. And of course the whole movie is made by Gyllenhaal's absolute tour de force. How was he not nominated for more awards?
You'll never watch the local news the same again. (If you're one of the three people who still watch the local news.)
