Angelica Jade Bastíen on Candyman (2021)

At Vulture, Angelica Jade Bastíen writes about Nia DaCosta’s Candyman (2021). Even if you disagree with her analysis, it’s worth reading and pondering. “Candyman is the most disappointing film of the year so far, limning not only the artistic failures of the individuals who ushered it to life, but the artistic failures of an entire industry that seeks to commodify Blackness to embolden its bottom line.”
