The Crow: The Story Behind the Film - Bridget Baiss
My boyfriend bought this book for me a few years back because The Crow is one of my all-time favorite movies. I honestly don't know why it has taken me this long to pick it up and read it. Probably because of the tragic death of Brandon Lee, which quite possibly could have been avoided if the gun had been cleaned or checked before that fateful scene was filmed. It started out slow for me, although, I do understand that in order for this story to be told right it has to start at the beginning. The process of the getting the comic book accepted by a production company, and the script-writing, pre-production, and hiring of the crew was not the story I was wanting to hear. But it was necessary to have that background, so the reader can understand all that went into this movie. The parts I liked the most is when the author gives us some insight into what kind of person Brandon was. Had he lived, I'm certain that he would be a huge star, with multiple movies under his belt. It's a very informative read and I would recommend it to fans of the movie.
