Candyman

Candyman ★★★★

Late review on this one. I loved how it transformed the initial story about violent historic racism to one about still relevant systemic racism, and how it managed to develop a protagonist who is only very slowly revealed to be a victim of this. The end is especially stunning here, creepy, beautifully shot, cathartic, really stuck with me over the four weeks now since I watched this. Big recommendation.

I watched this as part of my Hooptober list: letterboxd.com/djmacbest/list/hooptober-eight-late-and-light/
