Re: ANGEL HEART (1987) as neo-noir
I agree with the German noir writer; it may not be perfect, but it's pretty darned good. And I agree with you, if it wasn't for the denouement which pushes the film into horror territory, most people shouldn't have much trouble classifying what comes before as neo-noir both in plot and visual style. And Mickey Rourke is perfect as the unkempt private detective.
