(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Movie: Dick Tracy
Where You Can Stream It: HBO Now/HBO Go
The Pitch: Hard-boiled detective Dick Tracy (Warren Beatty, who also directs), based on the comic strip by Chester Gould, is searching for evidence that proves Alphonse “Big Boy” Caprice (Al Pacino) is the city’s most dangerous crime boss. He may have found the key to unraveling the crimelord’s illegal empire in Breathless Mahoney (Madonna), an enigmatic barroom singer who has witnessed some of Caprice’s crimes firsthand. However, she seems more set on stealing the detective away from his girlfriend, Tess (Glenne Headly), than helping him solve the case of his career.
Why It’s Essential Viewing: Dick Tracy was largely considered a flop when it was released back in 1990. With a production that was significantly over budget, Walt Disney Studios was disappointed to see the film make only $103.7 million domestically and another $59 million internationally. That’s not a bad take for a movie that came out in 1990, but for a movie that reportedly cost over $100 million, it’s less than thrilling, especially when it followed Tim Burton’s massively successful Batman, which grossed $411.5 million worldwide. But I’m here to tell you that not only should this movie not be considered a flop, but it’s one of the best comic book movies of all-time. Read More »
