You’re going to burn for this, Angel.
I am told that people didn’t like this film because it was hard to understand. If I told you the ending, you would not suffer a bit and could still enjoy this film immensely, but I won’t spoil it.
It is a deep and dark film, set in 1955 in Harlem and New Orleans. Cheap detectives, voodoo, murder, sex, racism – it’s all there to add to the mystery.
It is a mystery – a missing person case – where our hero, the two-bit detective (Mickey Rourke) goes looking for a man who has been missing for 12 years. His work takes him to New Orleans, where he gets involved with voodoo and Lisa Bonet (“The Cosby Show”) in her film debut. And, what a debut it was, as she and Rourke gave us a scene that had all the appearance of reality.
The film also features Charlotte Rampling, who, while not giving us the show she did in The Night Porter, nevertheless provides a treat as she lies dead with her heart cut out.
And, we wouldn’t want to leave out Elizabeth Whitcraft (Goodfellas, Working Girl) who gave the most skintastic performance of her career.
But, the real credit for the film goes to Robert De Niro, who plays a greasy looking character that hired Rourke, and provided the twisted ending that makes this film a horror classic.
Perhaps the most underrated film of all time
This was the only film that ever gave me sleepless nights. It is terrifying at an almost elemental level. I can understand why so many people gave this film a low rating; on first viewing it appears confused, plot less and strange, but, if you see it again, once the ending has been revealed, all the hidden meanings emerge from the woodwork and a truly shattering psychological experience reveals itself. Far from being confused, it is actually quite simple and straightforward. Far from being plot less, “Angel Heart” has one of the most intricate and well-constructed plots of any film I have seen. Every shot in this film carries a hidden meaning, from the opening with the young man’s corpse, to the whispers in Harry Angel’s ear, to Harry shattering a mirror, to the direction turned by the blades of fans. The more times you see the film, the more you understand and the more terrifying it becomes. In the movie “Hellraiser,” there is a magic puzzle that once solved, opens the gates to Hell. “Angel Heart” is the same way; the more of this puzzle you put together, the closer you get to the final, soul-searing understanding.
