Alex Proyas Stany Zjednoczone, 1994

Z's rating of the film The Crow

If there is a better, more aesthetically accomplished, more cinematic graphic novel adaptation I am not aware of it. Proyas announced himself as a major talent with this visual tour de force. The movie creates a threatening, stylized, shadow world of urban decay and violent chaos. Lee mesmerizes with his balletic grace. Rapid fire editing and a rich, Gothic atmosphere serve to imbue the film with a taught tension.
