“I am told that people didnu0026#39;t like this film because it was hard to understand. If I told you the ending, you would not suffer a bit and could still enjoy this film immensely, but I wonu0026#39;t spoil it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is a deep and dark film, set in 1955 in Harlem and New Orleans. Cheap detectives, voodoo, murder, sex, racism – itu0026#39;s all there to add to the mystery.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is a mystery – a missing person case – where our hero, the two-bit detective (Mickey Rourke) goes looking for a man who has been missing for 12 years. His work takes him to New Orleans, where he gets involved with voodoo and Lisa Bonet (u0026quot;The Cosby Showu0026quot;) in her film debut. And, what a debut it was, as she and Rourke gave us a scene that had all the appearance of reality.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film also features Charlotte Rampling, who, while not giving us the show she did in The Night Porter, nevertheless provides a treat as she lies dead with her heart cut out.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd, we wouldnu0026#39;t want to leave out Elizabeth Whitcraft (Goodfellas, Working Girl) who gave the most skintastic performance of her career.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut, the real credit for the film goes to Robert De Niro, who plays a greasy looking character that hired Rourke, and provided the twisted ending that makes this film a horror classic.”
