Film review: 'The Raven' is a lackluster Edgar Allan Poe mash-up
Edgar Allan Poe's place in American literature would have been secure even if his death hadn't been completely bizarre and mysterious ... just like his stories. But to be found on the streets of Baltimore, delirious, ill, and wearing someone else's clothes — well, that's the stuff legends are made of. Many theories have been presented over the years, and “The Raven” — directed by James McTeigue and starring John Cusack — comes up with another.
