Denis Johnson – Angels

  • Post author:

Angels. Not really. The story of 2 alcoholic drifter, working their way through life. Making a habit of taking the wrong, or rather, no, decisions. Dark, like Jesus Son. Bukowski-esk, but I find this one darker, more pessimistic. People are put to the test, while in Bukowski they make their own choices. And there is a bit more humor, and still, relativering in Bukowski.

And people do not get raped in Bukowski like in here.

A Houston family. A low social standing. All 3 brothers from 2 fathers follow the wrong path. Sex, drugs, alcohol, violence, crime. And all incapable of finding a way out.

With a marvelous ending.

Beautiful.
