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..

Alan Parker's Masterpiece
"Angel Heart" deserves to be considered Alan Parker's masterpiece. The
direction is truly amazing, as Parker drives us deeply through a
meticulously prepared dark atmosphere, full of allegories and secret
In "Angel Heart", we watch Mickey Rourke in his finest acting hour, who
plays Harry Angel, a private investigator hired by the mysterious Louis
Cyphre, depicted by the great Robert De Niro. Cyphre assigns Angel the
task to find a guy named Johnny Favorite who has disappeared, with whom
he has unsettled debts. The task is much harder than it first looks
however, as Angel bumps into several murders in the process; and as if
that were not enough, the quest makes him realize some very unpleasant
truths about himself and Mr. Cyphre.
As noted before, both Rourke and De Niro are excellent in their roles;
a high mark goes for the rest of the cast as well, with Lisa Bonnet
standing out as charming and apocryphal Epiphany Proudfoot. Yet, the
10/10 mark for this film is definitely credited to Alan Parker's
direction: It is his masterpiece..
