This Death Wish style revenge thriller about a woman who becomes a vigilante after she and her fiancée are involved in a violent attack contains one of Jodie Foster's most intriguing performances to date. Largely overlooked amongst the wealth of great films from 2007, it's a film worth reassessment.
Hard Candy is a ridiculously creepy movie. Centering on a girl who decides to trap a pedophile and make sure he never strikes again, it's a film full of moral ambiguity and containing great performances from Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson.
The third part of Park Chan-wook's vengeance trilogy, and the only one that's female driven, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is a stylish, blood soaked movie. Lee Young Ae is awesome in the leading role, as a woman steamrolling her way to revenge against the man who put her in jail and took her daughter away from her.
A revenge tale so grand it requires to films to tell it. Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman reunite for this one-two punch which, like film #3, is about a woman violently separated from her daughter.
Thelma & Louise seems to have faded out of pop culture in the last decade, but it's a film worth revisiting. It's a little over the top, sure, but it's also pretty damn entertaining.
