Angel Heart



I hadn't seen that movie for years, although I own the DVD. So when I decided to watch it last night, I did wonder if it would be as good as I remembered. It is and it still freaks me out. That elevator and that woman all in black sitting in the church...I actually had nightmares featuring the elevator.

It's beautifully photographed. I found out that Michael Seresin also worked on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which I equally admired for its brilliant cinematography. Trevor Jones wrote a haunting score that you won't forget in a hurry.

And speaking of memorable: Robert DeNiro only has a few scenes in the movie, but he steals each and every one of them. That man can make eating an egg look threatening
