Storyline

In Reno, the former successful trumpet player Nate Poole has a one night stand with the wife of the powerful and ruthless mobster Happy Shannon and one of his gangsters abducts Nate to kill him in the desert. Out of the blue, Nate is saved by Indians and he walks through the desert until he reaches a side show owned by Sam Adamo. Nate asks if Sam has a telephone to make a phone call to his friend Harriet, but he sees a beautiful woman with wings called Lily Luster and he asks a drink to her. Then he invites Lily to move with him to Reno. However Sam kidnaps Nate to kill him with a snake, but Lily rescues Nate with a truck and they head to Reno. Nate plots a scheme to raise some money, offering Lily to Happy. Along their journey back to Reno, Nate falls in love with her and he decides to call off the agreement with Happy. But the criminal finds Nate's hideout and abducts Lily and keeps the angel with him. Neverthless Nate is decided to rescue Lily from Hàppy's fortress.

Flawed, but touching
30 June 2011 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I found this film more touching than I would have imagined. Megan Fox was very good in her archetypal role. Beautiful music, some lovely photography, with nice turns by the various actors.

If there was a problem with the film, it was the script. Rourke's character, Nate Poole, undergoes some changes that aren't fully worked out, even within the magical realism of the world the film creates, and thus, his actions don't entirely seem consistent or fully motivated.

I've heard Rourke has criticized Ms. Fox's acting, and that seems unfair. The failure of the film at the box office is definitely a function of the script, not Ms. Fox.

For all its flaws, it's still a moving, often strangely beautiful film.
