I write my reviews in a rush.
A continuation from the incredible original, candyman is set in a universe where folklore is real. Following a hipster art student protagonist, we see pretentious academic culture be called out for what it is: a body without substance.
My gripe lies within the scenes of the film that seem distantly related, bordering on detached (the school scene, and the forced relationship with the laundromat man) and the many avenues the film hints at potentially taking without actually exploring (the bandaged hand emulating a hook, the dissent into madness through art)
Written from the bus.
This film gets even better every time I watch it. Not quite sure how, considering I know the twist and turns.
The opening of this film is very very powerful, I found myself engaged to the point where I was over the top horrified and simply distraught. The momentum of the film is pretty flawless, it indulges the viewer by allowing them to really take in what is happening.
Such a serious review seems silly over an action film like…
