Love Him Or Hate Him, John Cusack Is Edgar Allan Poe on Film

The Raven (2012)

John Cusack portrays Edgar Allan Poe in a way we don’t usually imagine  the tormented poet.  This is all despite hearing all our lives that that Poe was an alcoholic, erratic, and even expelled from West Point. He was talented, but tortured.

In The Raven (2012), we witness Cusack’s Poe up close and with belief.

He craves alcohol, screams at people in bars and gets tossed out. He shouts at his newspaper editor and bellows about a hack critic’s work used in place of his own – the hack later gets himself sliced up.

Poe is not appreciated in his own lifetime as he might have been. In fact, his innovative style may have earned him a rating of “crackpot.” However, viewing the film one might say, “No wonder he drinks.”

See the film as soon as possible.
