Sin of an Angel (1979)
1h 49min · Fantasy, Musical, Sci-Fi · 1 January 1979
This vexing piece of 1970s psychedelia manages to make Heaven look like the interior of a starship, where vaguely STAR TREK-inspired viewing screens and uniforms, as well as choreographed dance routines, are all the rage. With the head angel outraged after viewing a compilation of scenes of (remarkably innocent-looking) human excess on Earth, blue-eyed Husayn Fahmi - frequently cast as something of an otherworldly enigma in Egyptian movies - gets to observe humanity at first hand, becoming embroiled in organized crime and murder but nevertheless concluding that humankind (not to mention fallen angels like himself) are still worthy of redemption.
