Mickey Rourke, Robert De Niro, Lisa Bonet. A private detective takes a hellish journey to 1950s New Orleans where he discovers an erotic and shocking world of murder, sex and voodoo rituals. 1987/color/112 min/NR/widescreen.
Fans of this underrated occult-noir gem will be extremely satisfied with Lions Gate's special edition of Angel Heart. It is a great combination of a clean presentation, documentaries, detailed commentaries, and new/original promotional material. The key elements to Angel Heart's effectiveness are its dark, rich visuals and haunting soundscapes. Previous releases look and sounded OK, but this newly remastered DVD is nothing short of outstanding. The new anamorphic widescreen (1.85) presentation and 5.1 Dolby Digital sound successfully radiate Angel Heart's beautiful and unsettlingly aura of evil and passion. Director Alan Parker's interesting commentary is the same as on previous releases. What is new for this edition is scene-specific commentary by Mickey Rourke (runtime: 15 minutes). Though a full commentary would have been great, Rourke's limited anecdotes are a welcome addition. One of the more surprising and satisfying extras is a new, and very rare, 20-minute interview with Rourke about his experiences working with Parker and the shooting of Angel Heart. And for those looking to learn more about dancing with the Loas, there are five new documentaries about the Voodoo religion (total runtime: 60 minutes), including two extended dance sequences. This is the edition Angel Heart aficionados have been waiting for, and no souls had to be sold to get it. --Rob Bracco
What a classic! I think I'm the only person in the world that saw this, because whenever I mentioned it, people just looked at me in bewilderment. Now I can play it for them!Published 22 days ago by ReigningInNovember
Rourke and DeNiro...doesn't get much better than that. Some graphic, maybe shocking scenes, but I loved Rourke in his early days.Published 23 days ago by LeChatsMeow
Movie gave me the heebie jeebies. I literally threw it in the dumpster immediately after watching. I still love Lisa Bonet though and her husband Jason Momoa :)Published 26 days ago by FRANKIE
Oldie but a goodie. Lisa bonet was sexy and I was so surprised to see her in a sex scene after growing up with her on Cosby.Published 28 days ago by Greg Frazey

|Who´s the guy who dies at the beginning of the movie?||
I had somewhat similar questions. To find out, turn on the director's commentary to hear Alan Parker's explanation and comment of the opening scene.
