Before I Go To Sleep
Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong star in director Rowan Joffe's (Brighton Rock) psychological thriller.
This famously tragic comic book adaptation, whose lead actor Brandon Lee died on set, is also noteworthy for its darkly atmospheric music and visuals and some spectacular martial arts set pieces
Relentlessly dark, this action/horror flick (faithfully adapted from James O'Barr's comic books) is probably best known for the accidental on-set killing of its star, Brandon Lee (whose father Bruce also died tragically young).
Indeed, the shadow of Brandon's death looms large over the movie, not least because he plays an aspiring rock star who, having been murdered along with his girlfriend, returns to exact revenge on their depraved killers. On a more technical note, there are also a lot of back-of-the-head shots, obviously filmed after Lee's death.
Still, it's got the best of the neo-gothic design and rainswept, oilslick sheen from the Batman series, a heartfelt romantic core and some handsome, acrobatic action sequences that do justice to Lee's undoubted martial mastery.
A wretched sequel, The Crow: City Of Angels, was made starring Vincent Perez and Iggy Pop.
The term 'cult film' could have been invented with The Crow in mind.
Shooting has started in Cincinnati on The Killing of a Sacred Deer,¿ which reunites Colin Farrell with director/producer Yorgos Lanthimos, following the critical and commercial success of The Lobster.
