The Crow at Alamo Drafthouse (Dallas)
Blending industrial urban settings with a supernatural revenge tale, THE CROW is a confident and captivating exercise in stylized action cinema based on the James O'Barr graphic novel of the same name. Starring Brandon Lee in his final theatrical performance, this sophomore feature from contemporary genre maestro Alex Proyas brings the now-iconic Eric Draven back to life as he seeks revenge against those who killed him and his girlfriend. Uniquely positing horror elements into comic book conventions, THE CROW balances sex, violence and angst, consequently redefining the image of a badass antihero for Generation Y. Also featuring an assembly of character acting greats, including David Patrick Kelly, Ernie Hudson, Tony Todd, Michael Wincott, Bai Ling and Jon Polito, THE CROW is fun, brutal and gothic simultaneously with a rock ‘n’ roll sensibility that pleases fans of Nine Inch Nails as much as Edgar Allen Poe.
