Headed for DVD
10 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title "Angel's Flight" has a marvelous double meaning...the late, quaint funicular railway in downtown Los Angeles, and the film's emotionally scarred "angel", Liz. Made on a shoe-string budget over a period of several years, Deane Romano's script is a mature, non-exploitation story of a serial-killer in L.A.'s seedy side. Eschewing gratuitous violence, the killer's psychological turmoil is revealed by her relationship with a local newsman and the help of the good-guy detective. Excellent cast (especially the gorgeous Indus Arthur), well-devised plot and unique locations far overcome some spotty photography and uneven directing. On balance...good entertainment!
