Dir. Warren Beatty. 1990, 105 mins. 35mm. With Warren Beatty, Madonna, Al Pacino, William Forsythe, Glenne Headly, Seymour Cassel, Dustin Hoffman, Kathy Bates, James Caan. Beatty’s big-budget, color-drenched adaptation of Chester Gould’s classic mid-century comic strip is a visual delight from start to finish, featuring lovingly detailed noir photography by Vittorio Storaro. Perfectly casting Beatty as the granite-jawed, crime-busting detective and employing a who’s-who of Hollywood stars and character actors, many amusingly hidden behind face-altering latex, Dick Tracy is both summer blockbuster and a kind of personal memory piece, featuring a flawless song score by Sondheim (the Madonna-sung “Sooner or Later” won him his first Academy Award) that is one of his late-career highlights.
