2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the 1994 adaptation of James O'Barr's The Crow
. Which, sadly, makes it also the 20th anniversary of star Brandon Lee's untimely death."The key to immortality is first to live a life worth remembering."
I feel like The Crow
is one of those movies like Jacob's Ladder
and Silent Hill
that I've seen dozens of times, and I talk around it every so often without going into a lot of depth. This week, before realizing thanks to an article in the current issue of Rue Morgue
that it has been twenty years now (!), I had already started a mini-marathon focusing on Bruce and Brandon Lee's movies. I'm taking it as a sign. I'm also going to assume you've seen it already, and leave out my usual plot summary partly for the sake of brevity, but mostly because the plot is not really my main talking point here.( Let's talk about The Crow. . . )
