Quote The Raven Nevermore John Cusack
Casting John Cusack as Poe in The Raven was a respectful choice. Cusack has a commanding presence that hints of a darker reclusive side. There are moments when the film gives the taste of Poe's presence that a literary audience seeks. Plus, Edgar's last days are shrouded in enough mystery to provide legitimate space for fictional speculation or even just invention. Yet, the tragedy of Poe's cold, lonely end is not completely fair game for any movie regardless of legacy impact.
