ANGEL-A

Luc Besson hadn’t made a film in almost ten years, and then two came along in 2007: the lackluster kid film “Arthur and the Invisibles” and this gorgeous black-and-white entry in the “cinema du look” (ala’ “Diva,” and Besson’s own “La Femme Nikita” and “Subway”). This film is a return to form – somewhat. The serio-comic neo-noir tale of a down on his luck grifter and his supermodel guardian angel (who saves him from suicide, among other things), Besson’s film is above all great to look at, mixing in humor and violence with understated aplomb.
