The Crow ★★★

The Crow cannot simply be viewed as a movie... it has to be seen as a eulogy. And in that light it is able to transcend its cartoonishness and remain the dark allegory of tragedy and death that has become so iconic. It’s hard not to watch without having a lump in your throat.

I wish we still had this Alex Proyas... the pre-I-Robot Proyas who took major risks and wasn’t afraid to explore his dark side.
