Before Robert Pattinson's take on 'The Batman' another winged avenger ruled the gothic grunge roost. Long held as a bonafide cult classic 1994 film The Crow has recently begun to be re-evaluated for just how much influence it has had on modern cinema (especially Pattinson's Batman). Starring Brandon (son of Bruce) Lee in his tragic final role alongside other cult movie actors Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), David Patrick Kelly (Twin Peaks/The Warriors) and Tony Todd (Candyman), this dark pop culture masterpiece tells the tale of Eric Draven, an rock musician who is resurrected from the grave by a supernatural crow so he can seek retribution on those who have wronged him, which in this case just happens to lead to the city's leading crime syndicate. The film is cleverly stylised and brilliantly shot by Dariusz Wolski, a music video director for the likes of David Bowie, Elton John, Eminem and Sting. Wolski later became the go to cinematographer for the likes of Ridley Scott, and Tim Burton, fitting given the clear influences of Scott's Blade Runner and Burton's 1989 Batman on show here. The film went on to become a big influence on the future of popular cinema and still stands as one of the best dark comic book adaptations ever made. Long considered for a reboot it seems one is finally in production starring Pennywise/It actor Bill Skarsgård and FKA Twigs, making now the perfect time to (re)acquaint yourself with the gothic delights of The Crow.
