With the massive success of BATMAN ’89, Hollywood opened the floodgates on high-budgeted pulp adventure stories. Luckily for star/producer Warren Beatty, who owned the rights to the square-jawed crimefighter, the stars aligned for this candy-colored musical action fantasia. Torn between his gal friday Tess Trueheart and the slinking Breathless Mahoney (Madonna, at the time Beatty’s girlfriend), Tracy goes up against crime boss Big Boy Caprice (an all-time Pacino) and his rogue’s gallery of freak show goons (itself a constellation of star cameos). Lensed by Vittorio Storaro (REDS, APOCALYPSE NOW), with music by Stephen Sondheim, DICK TRACY’s fusion of classical Hollywood wonder and modern expressionism is too intoxicating to miss. (Jake Isgar)
