Movie Reviews

Incomprehensible, but fun
Greg Goodsell | Bakersfield, CA United States | 05/18/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"One can't begin to describe ANGELS, a lensed in New York-oddity that is probably the most bizarre thing Harry Novak ever released. God is a dapper black man who needs to recruit angels into his depleting Heaven. As such, he intentionally sends out nun hit-ladies to run over people in an Art Deco-styled Bentley. Throw in two macho gangster types, a young Vince Schiavelli, a Robert Mapplethorpe-type photographer who likes to photograph dead things, a mime, a hysterical yenta and you get -- I don't know! You tell me! Shot in 1975, this type of counter-cultural nonsense had long since left neighborhood theaters. GETTING INTO HEAVEN is the disc's "square-up" reel, where we get Uschi Digart, and lots of her, to make up for the rather "chaste" quality of ANGELS. You'll want to get this disc for all the retro bonuses, trailers for hippie-flavored art and exploitation movies that nobody has ever heard of before!"
