Alan Parker's Angel Heart has built a cult following, and this Special Edition DVD of the film from Lion's Gate will easily satisfy that audience. The film itself is presented in its original widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack does a fine job of presenting the original material. The copious supplemental materials include a feature-length commentary recorded by Alan Parker. He comments at great length on the performers and is full of anecdotal information about the making of the film, although he occasionally lapses into silence, saying he has not watched the film for quite some time. A scene-specific commentary by Mickey Rourke reveals that he did almost no research for the part and agreed to do it mostly because he admired Parker's Midnight Express. A handful of featurettes on voodoo, an introduction by Parker, an interview with Rourke in which he discusses his entire career (while holding onto his pet dog), and making-of featurettes created at the time of the original production all add flavor to this solid release.

Simlpy the best picture I've ever seen. Parker's most astonishing picture!

I admit that I was first taken in by the movie due to the title. Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2, The Expendables),Robert Deniro (A Bronx Tale, Stardust, Limitless), and Lisa Bonet (The Cosby Show) performed their roles with great intensity and clear precision. The reason why I ranked it two stars is due to the fact that I felt that the plot could have included at least one to two characters that had a dominance of “good” in them. Additionally, the movie seemed to imply that an intentionally evil person may be unaware of what they are doing. I can understand if the character came from a background of little emotional warmth and/or affection. However, the fact that a street smart detective seemed to be “controlled” clashes with the idea of free will for mankind. Due to these reasons, “Angel Heart” would be more for those who are horror film fanatics.

I admit that it is not always easy for me to publicly rate something two stars or less. This is only because I strongly believe in karma, which also is related to the type of reviews that a man or woman puts out publicy. I understand that diehard fans of this movie and/or those who disagree with my viewpoint may give at least one unhelpful vote, but I feel it necessary to speak about the movie. “Angel Heart” is a supernatural type of movie that touches on the nature of good versus evil. The casting of Mickey Rourke as Harry Angel, Robert Deniro as Louis Cyphre, and Lisa Bonet as Epiphany Proudfoot was well done. The positives: Mickey Rourke brilliantly played a detective who goes about getting the answers to his questions in very unconventional ways. Rourke’s complicated but convincing portrayal as Harry Angel reminds me of the strong complexity that he showed as a villain in Iron Man 2. Rourke also did a good job in expressing shock at some of the events in the movies, part of me also wanted to believe he had nothing to do with many of the events that transpired. Robert Deniro did an incomparable job of portraying a man who is not how he appears to be and a tricky character to pin down. Deniro’s gift of portraying multiple personas reminds me of his intensity in The Bronx Tale and Stardust movies.Deniro also distinctively plays a Cyphre who convinces Harry Angel that he is truly an ally. Lisa Bonet does a notable job in portraying a woman who is doing the best that she could in going on in her life without her mother while also tending to her son. The reason why I give “AngelHeart” two stars despite the terrific acting is due to my uneasiness with the painting of the Proudfoot character as only promiscuous and mainly focused on her occult lifestyle.  There is nothing wrong with those who choose unconventional lifestyles, but I was hoping that Bonet’s Proudfoot character would have been portrayed in a more positive light. Yes, she was at least wonderfully portrayed as a caring mother. However, it would have been nice if other facets of her were more frequently revealed in the movie. I felt as if the movie was unintentionally portraying that Proudfoot deserved what happened to her as a result of crude stereotypes. Maybe a remake and/or sequel could feature either Proudfoot or one of her descendants as a female of many interests who loves life and is highly spiritual. The remake and/or sequel could also feature what happened to Harry Angel and/or one of his descendants in the afterlife. I only say this because I do believe in reincarnation, and believe that a formerly evil spirit is eventually released from the darker non-physical realms if they are remorseful and are determined to spiritually evolve. However, there are some fans of horror films that may enjoy “AngelHeart.”
