This is a ten out of ten movie if there ever was one.
30 March 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

The difficulty with rating movies is the different genres that they come in. This problem is enhanced when the film comes from a different country where the aesthetic is different. Art is perceived from alternative perceptions. The key is looking at film from the perception of the artist. Angel Dust is a superior movie. Its lack of sound/music during the movie and long moments of silence can be frustrating but taken as a whole things like that make it a movie above the rest. No car crashes or explosions just a heady movie. If you like to do a lot of thinking and "figuring out" watch this movie.
