    back in 1987 I think, I went into this little New London, CT movie theatre with this beautiful navy girl whose husband had gone out to sea (she didnt tell me this until later) and she was a born-again Christian, and we went to see Angel Heart and it had so thoroughly disturbed her she left halfway into the film.

    anyway, I love the cinematography, Mickey Rourke's acting, the set design, the moodiness of the film . . . Charlotte Rampling.

    To think that it was a film Rourke did begrudgingly because he needed the money.

    Yeah, way back about ten years or so I happened upon a vinyl promo of the soundtrack which included that song (and Girl of My Dreams)

    I just bought the CD last week and neither song is on it for reasons of copyright. :(

    You are absolutely right though . . . Rourke is brilliant here as he is in this clip from The Pledge years later:

    [video=youtube_share;OkP2osYbdTY]http://youtu.be/OkP2osYbdTY[/video]

    He captures such painful nuances, masterful acting here . . .

    there's a slew of evil movies coming out this year and next; it's really ponderous. and not just horror movies; mostly action movies. and not recoil in disgust evil, but pride of life look at me evil. very dangerous. imo. :ucoffee:

    I dated a girl for a few weeks before I went to her house and saw dead animal heads and guns all over the walls.
    I asked her who was the hunter, she said it was her husband. I said "oh.....so how long have you guys been spilt-up?". She said "no.....he's just overseas right now"


    I bought my first pistol the next weekend.

    It was so controversial when it was released, it wouldn't even make a blip today

    Well, this depends on how you look at the question:
    1) He starred in Angel Heart with Lisa Bonet of Cosby Show fame - scenes had to be cut b/c they were too explicit;
    2) He starred in Wild Orchid with Care Otis, and allegedly they had sex on screen - I wouldn't doubt it, what the heck, they were married anyway ....
