Acclaimed director Alan Parker (Mississippi Burning, Midnight Express) tells the story of private detective Harry Angel who gets more then he bargained for in what seems like a simple missing person case. Mickey Rourke plays old school detective Harry Angel like a character straight out of a Tom Waits song. De Niro is masterfully understated and steals every scene as the shadowy client that hires Angel. The soundtrack is creepily fitting and the action finds the perfect mix between straight out detective story and all out horror building to an unforgettable climax.
