Nightcrawler, a new thriller with a sense of humor by Dan Gilroy, is a recession-era American Psycho. It’s a story that grasps the misery of low wages and lower cunning. Or perhaps it could be described as the Hunger Games of capitalist exploitation, couched in a critique of the American news media in all its graphic absurdity. The economic crisis of inequality transmutes here into scenes of a fiery car crash, an exhilarating police chase, and the obliteration of human decency. You won’t be able to look away.
