The Angel Levine


Dir. Jan Kadar (1970).
Bill Gunn’s adaptation hones the edge of Bernard Malamud’s melancholy parable about race relations in ‘60s New York and newly emigrated Czech director Jan Kadar contributes a sense of dilapidated magic realism. The cast is sensational, with Zero Mostel and Ida Kaminska playing an impoverished Jewish couple, and Harry Belafonte as their heavenly visitor.
