Where does his latest work in 'Nightcrawler' figure in?
9. "Moonlight Mile" (2003)
Tearjerking takes delicacy. Everything that could go wrong with Brad Silberling’s auto-biographical “Moonlight Mile” goes right thanks to Jake Gyllenhaal’s sincerity. He’s one of those rare actors who can swing from totally disaffected (see: “Donnie Darko”) to ripped-abs blockbuster action star (oh, “Prince of Persia”) and still land back at his middle ground. He’s a normal, imperfect guy at heart. Playing it straight in the face of murdered fiancées and grieving parents is all it takes sometimes.
