Candy (2006): 4/5

Self-admittedly, ‘Candy’ is just like any other drug abuse movie, with blatant parallelisms to Trainspotting, Requiem for a Dream, Half Nelson, Blow, etc. – but there’s definitely something about the poignant story-telling technique of this film that sets it apart from the rest in the genre. Dan (Heath Ledger, the embodiment of true irony) and Candy (Abbie Cornish) are junkies. In fact, they’re the coolest people in McDonald’s (clap if you’ve seen it). It’s a double-junkie story about seduction (by drugs and themselves) laced with desperation topped with the right amount of sappiness- a brilliant recipe for eye candy (pun intended) such as this movie. Amazing cast and soundtrack was awesome… Watch this movie. You know you want it. ….(that was me feigning addiction)
