Paul and Erin review two movies about angels mingling with mortals while wearing heavy overcoats. First: WINGS OF DESIRE, Wim Wenders' 1987 classic about an angel in Berlin who decides to become human after falling in love with a beautiful trapeze artist; then, DOGMA, Kevin Smith's raunchy 1999 religious comedy starring Linda Fiorentino as an abortion-clinic employee who is assigned the holy mission of stopping two rogue angels from returning to heaven and thereby causing the end of the world. A Nick Cave concert or an Alanis Morissette cameo: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on CITIZENFOUR, TUSK, PALO ALTO, and STEP UP ALL IN.
