This review is from: Angel [DVD] (DVD)
This is a very dark movie indeed.
Our "hero" is a saxophonist in a band who witnesses a double murder outside a nightclub he has been playing in. It would appear that he is damaged goods to begin with but his mental state deteriorates as he embarks on a journey across a bleak and troubled Ireland in search of the men responsible, they may be I.R.A. terrorists, they may be gangsters, perhaps both.
This whole movie is almost dreamlike in quality as he travels across a troubled land encountering seemingly hopless characters and emotional isolation.
Neil Jordan's directorial debut is stunning.
