Hard Candy

This has got be one of the darkest, bleakest movies I have ever seen. I will leave it to you to watch it or not (though be warned, it is very gruesome) but the thing that bothers me about the movie is the appearance of moral equivalence. The producers of this movie want to give the appearance of a dilemma when really there is none. The movie is very finely acted (and I would be very surprised if Page did not get a best actress nomination out of it), but at it's core is numbing and slightly boring. After a half an hour, you have basically seen all there is to see.
