After several recommendations, I finally watched the movie Hard Candy. It’s quite an interesting thriller, although certainly not without flaws and plot holes. There’s some debate about whether the film is about child abuse, or about vigilantes. I’ll post some thoughts on that in the comments, to avoid spoiling details in case you haven’t watched the film. The visual style is cool, but a bit too "designed" for my taste – MTV/videoclip aesthetics. It works well in that it supports the dry atmosphere of the whole movie.
