I liked Nightcrawler so much that I’m bummed I couldn’t like Roman J. Israel, Esq. more; I like Dan Gilroy, I like Denzel Washington, I like Carmen Ejogo, and I like Colin Farrell. (In case you don’t already know, I also like social activism and social justice.) This movie should have been a slam dunk for me. Instead, it just puzzled me. It has the markings of a great movie, but it gets lost in itself and never figures out what it wants to be about. Shame, that. But at least I got a decent piece out of it, as you will no doubt agree once you read my review over at Paste Magazine.
