Passion Play (2010)

An angel under the thumb of a ruthless gangster is saved by a trumpet player down on his luck.

A silly phantasmagoria with a Noir touch has Rourke and Murray in good form, but you'll need to be in the mood for a slow-paced, brooding fairy tale; the 'twist ending', however, was obvious from the beginning on.

Maltin*1/2: "Jumbled noir-ish fantasy...Murray is game, playing a hood named Happy, but even he can't add much to this barely watchable, instantly forgettable mess. A less than auspicious directorial debut..."
