Symbolism reigns supreme in Alan Parker’s vastly under-appreciated 1987 film Angel Heart. The soundtrack pulsates. Mickey Rourke, at the absolute top of his game, turns the star power to 11 in a stunning performance.

It’s a movie worth re-watching. Complex. Shimmering. Brooding. I love every second. Soak it up. A must see.

And another classic movie moment.

You’re going to burn for this…
