Some Very Hard Candy

I just saw the movie Hard Candy. It's an indie film based on a merely clever gimmick that rises well beyond it. I won't say what it's about, but I will say that at every point in the film it's not quite what you think, and (and this may be the highest praise I can give it) that feeling does not dissipate once the movie is over. My immediate reaction was negative. Three minutes later I started to really like it. Five minutes after that I was still contemplating what it meant. That has most Hollywood celluloid drivel beat by a mile.
