    • Item: Angel Heart (R, 1987) movie Location: by: Famous

      This was the movie that everyone was talking about in the late 80’s. Why? Lisa Bonet. This was the controversial role that some people say sealed Lisa Bonet’s fate as an actress.

      I tend to disagree. I think that she did the movie because she wanted to, and didn’t care what anyone thought.

        The film is grainy and dark. But the sets are really really authentic.

        This is a movie that isn’t overly terrifying, so much as eerie and creepy. It’s a mystery that begins to unfold about halfway through.

        And by the time the INFAMOUS SEX SCENE

        occurs, the viewer begins to understand why the scene is so pivotal. This was really a movie that should have reached more viewers.

        I suppose for the 80’s (especially after seeing Bonet portraying “saintly” Denise on the Cosby Show) –this movie was fairly shocking. In retrospect, it’s really a delightfully crafted film.

        I would recommend it to anyone who’s a fan of film noir.
