As a lover of psychological thrillers and a fan of Robert De Niro, I could not ignore this film by the famous English director Alan Parker, despite the fact that the rest of my creations I watched did not greatly impress me.
A movie with such a strong cast must at least be interesting. However, in this case, the great game of Mickey Rourke, who played the main role and the unsurpassed master of cinema Robert De Niro, who got the smaller role, is not the only plus of Angel Heart.
It is worth noting that, despite the small amount of screen time, De Niro managed to show his character as spectacularly as possible. Looking at Louis Cypher, the viewer does not see the actor, but what, if not this, is an indicator of the highest acting skills? The image of Louis is so clearly imprinted in the memory of both the viewer and the protagonist that it seems as if he follows an invisible shadow behind Angel and somehow controls his actions. A very effective and non-trivial for the eighty-seventh ending will show that this impression is not so false.
Perhaps the current viewer, who watched a lot of thrillers with a similar style, would not be impressed by the tricks used by Parker in “Heart of an Angel.” However, for those times they were truly innovative.
If we discard the fact that many of the moves used by the director in the “heart of an angel” were repeated in later films and let him capture you, he will keep in suspense until the very end. Tickling nerves musical accompaniment, an extremely confusing plot, the abundant presence of symbols, various signs and hints to the viewer creates an indescribable atmosphere, which Scorsese copied with varying degrees of success in The Island of the Damned, Polanski in The Ninth Gate and many other eminent figures of cinema .
Perhaps this is the main problem of “Heart of an Angel” and is the reason why the film did not find serious commercial success in the United States and did not enter the number of elite thrillers of the first echelon, although it certainly deserves it.
The question then arises: Why did this obviously outstanding movie production fail to attract real attention of the mass audience (for comparison, only 33,000 people rated the Âangel on IMDB versus 66,000 ratings from the same ÂNinth Gate and 242,000 ratings from ÂThe Damned Islands)? Famous actors, the masterful work of the director and cameraman, a twisted plot .. In place all the components needed to give the picture a cult status, except for one, without which in the tough world of Hollywood there is nothing to count on success – a competent PR campaign. It is also possible that the Âangel became a victim of its innovative style, serving as a kind of platform for subsequent, more successful and better served films, nevertheless taking most of the ideas from the ÂHeart of the Angel.
