As it turns out, Marvel made the right choice. Candyman, the “spiritual” (instead of exploitive) sequel to the 1992 original, is superior in every way. In fact, this film is so good, it makes Bernard Rose’s film essential viewing, if only to complete the context.
See this film if you want to experience the calm after the storm.
I have never come across someone who has a bad thing to say about Rain Man, but if it were released today, I am sure someone could complain. Thank God it came out in 1988.
What was just a courtesy of response to me for a friend earlier now has an experience behind it that has added colors my world. Let it color yours, too.
As for McDormand, what else can be said about her? She is without a doubt the most courageous actress of our time.
If you want to really get something out of a story, and you want to connect to humanity, this should be the film of the year.
This is some of the best work of Boseman’s too short career, and it’s representative of what Davis does every time out.
I don’t know if I could have enjoyed this film decades ago. And I feel lucky that I haven’t been forced to form an opinion until I had time and the experience to take it all in.
Nearly as haunting as the real thing.
It’s a glamorization, but it is a damn good one.
It’s a remarkable story that presents the facts with no indication of a position being taken. In doing so, Forsyth allows Robinson’s work to forge its own path through our soul.
Weekes does an excellent job creating a situation that we can empathize with, even if it is not an experience we share.
Robin Hardy created a masterpiece during a time when good horror is as hard to find as the young and vibrant Rowan Morrison.
The list of movies I have been putting off is shrinking by the day. Add another classic to the list.
This is one of the better films of the last 20 years. It only took me 14 years to see it.
It’s a pleasant consequence of having the skill to turn above average into the unforgettable. These films should not be important bedrock films. Yet here they are, standing head and shoulders above, almost 60 years later.
