Many praise this movie..I just did not get it..I never even made it to the 2nd dicc..The story Never drew me in. A closet Homesexual, Al Pacino with AIDS, Hallucinations? Pill Popping? I just did not get it...If you expected touching and moving heartwarming family movie about Angels this is not it. Too deep. I do not like to have to decipher meabnings and motives out of the films I can enjoy in my down time.

A Moving and Stunning Drama
Linda E. Dewey MD | Michigan, USA | 01/01/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am glad so many people have given this work-of-art film such high ratings and accolades. I cannot add anything more to the countless wonderful comments already expressed, but that I don't think that I have cried more often, nor have been uplifted in joy, so many times watching one film. Truly a masterpiece."
A Masterpiece Goes Into a New Decade.

"If you are unaware of the intense plotline and the superb performances, there are over 200 reviews describing both, so I shan't bore you with another of the same.

I watch this marathon production a couple of times a year or more if I have out-of-town visitors who know nothing about the story. These visitors are usually from other planets. As much fantasy as there is in the film, the reality just knocks the breath out of me.

Here we are, now in 2010 and I watched "Angels" once again and you know, I loved being drawn in again, thrown to the floor, beaten almost to death and then returned to reality.

An emotional roller coaster and I was sitting in the front car with my arms up..."
