Alan Parker United States, 1987

FelicityDreamer's rating of the film Angel Heart

I loved this film for many years and watched it repeatedly. It has tremendous atmosphere with plenty of menace. New Orleans is portrayed as hot, exotic and dangerous - I always wanted to visit. Mickey Rourke was at his most gorgeous and the sex scenes, which caused such controversy, sweltered like the bodies in the heat.
