se7en is an almost perfect criminal and has really good observations about awareness of society. Nightcrawler has good characterization but it has some logical fallacies and looking like a tv-movie.
Indeed, Se7en does not set out to be this sweeping indictment of society, and focuses on being a well-crafted thriller in a depraved world, but still ends up chancing upon harsh truths about our everyday existence. Nightcrawler clearly wants to critique the modern consumer, but doesn't quite achieve as much as Se7en -- neither as a thriller nor as social commentary. Having said that, nothing but respect for Jake Gyllenhaal's turn as Lou Bloom, who would probably be a model citizen in Se7en's rainy city.
