Candyman

Candyman

Really split on this — on one hand it’s got striking imagery, a terrific cast with some really great performances, and fascinating ideas about collective trauma and its passing through generations. On the other hand it’s not really scary and its internal logic is unfortunately too convoluted imo. A bummer, because Nia Decosta is doing really great things on a craft level. The character of Anthony was super relatable tho because I too wait far too long before going to a doctor for something I should obviously get checked out.
