Alan Parker United States, 1987

anarresti's rating of the film Angel Heart

A very fortunate blend of genres, with elements of film noir, in the way the detective character is introduced in the narrative and its universe romanticized, of thriller, in some plot traps and suspense creation, and in horror, in the theme and atmosphere. But what makes it great is the story. And I will not spoil it for anyone who still has not seen it. Very original and well delivered story. Didn't read the book.
