ANGEL HEART (1987 U.S. CANADA U.K.) D/W: ALAN PARKER P: ALAN MARSHALL/ELLIOT KOSTNER
One of the better and most atmospheric major horror films of the 1980`s. Based on William Hjortsberg`s great tongue-in-cheek noir nightmare novel Fallen Angel (but relocating some of the action to New Orleans), the serpentine tale set in the 1950`s stars Mickey Rourke as a chainsmoking Private Detective hired by Robert De Niro (the Devil himself, or Louis Cyphre!) to find a missing singer. It`s long, but worth sticking with. With Lisa Bonet, Charlotte Rampling, Kathleen Wilhoite and Pruitt Taylor Vince.
