Hard Candy

Postby Zeo » Mon May 01, 2006 3:30 pm

Is playing at Downtown West for a few days. Go see it. I can't say much about it without giving the movie away, but it's an amazing psychological thriller and the best film I've seen this year.
Here is the plot Synopsis from IMDB:
A provocative drama about a 32-year-old man who takes home a 14-year-old girl he meets on the Internet--with surprising consequences.


Director David Slade's first feature film, he's directing the film version of "30 Days of Night" next year. The acting and cinematography were top-notch and the plot twists really keep you guessing.

GODDAMNIT! I can smell god movies. I totally wanted to try and see this last night. I was like, it'll be decent, but nooo....we had to play drunken Monopoly. DAMNIT! It's like Capote. I knew thatshit was going to be awesome, but I couldn't get anyone to go and see it with me.

That's it. I'm seeing this shit tommrrow.

The only good thing about seeing King Kong was seeing this trailer. It looked smashing, and yeah, I've got a feeling the less you know the better, so I'll be avoiding this thread.

Too bad I'll have to catch this on DVD - I'm currently living in a worse theater black hole than Knoxville by far.

Well fuck me in my ass...I just read 30 Days of Night.

HA!

I'm sure the film will suck, because anything I get exited about sucks...and anything I want to see I never do, and it's totally fucking awesome.

Here is a good review / interview from Film Threat. It contains many spoilers and references that give away plot elements. I would urge anyone to see the movie before reading it. The less you know about it going in the better.

I dug it too, especially the first hour. It drug a bit in the end, but that's OK - My hopes were probably set just a bit high based on the killer trailer. I really liked the focus on just 2 characters and the verbal sparring match. So cool when it is done well. Yeah, a must buy.

Oh yea...the bit where he fucks with her and they go back and forth is excellent. This is a prime example of the stuff I have been writing. No more than 5 characters, and all interaction is between the main 2. I found the twist at the end most excellent...I felt a little dissatisfied without knowing how Hailey knew Donna. That part was a bit annoying. It did seem to me though that she had a bit of a jealous thing with Janelle. maybe it's that "girl-molested-by-her-father marries a guy like her father"

I only had time to watch it once, but it was very entertaining as well. Which is what alot of movies lack...
