I just finished watching Angel Heart, the old Mickey Rourke movie from the 80s. I was discussing it with some work colleagues and someone said, "I don't watch old films." Although, it was pretty hard to take that something from this time period is now an old movie, but I guess it is. I think Alan Parker did a brilliant job adapting a decent novel--after all, he's an author as much as a director--so I recommended they watch it despite the "age" problem.
Anyone think crossing genres worked here? Any other good books to recommend where they cross-pollinate different genres?
