Candyman ★★★½

Through DaCosta’s fresh bohemian gaze, 2021’s Candyman is a visually kinetic portrait of generational pain that echoes infinite reflections of history through our comfortably numb present. Thematically, it doesn’t always hit the nail on the head, but in comparison to something like Sophia Takal’s remake of ‘Black Christmas’, this at least sets a higher standard for the genre. On a side note, the film’s sour commentary about modern art curation is quite possibly one of the most ingenious things I’ve seen in a movie this year.
