* DoubleMeaningTitle: The title refers to [[spoiler:the beating heart belonging to the original Harold Angel that Johnny Favourite stole]], but the meaning is also more literal in that the movie deals with a actual angel--just [[{{Satan}} not a very good one]].

** [=DeNiro=] is obviously having a ''wonderful'' time with the role. At any moment you expect him to giggle. Note that he manages to ham it up without speaking all that loudly; he remains quite soft-spoken and calm throughout the film, but his enjoyment is just streaming from his body language.

Note that he manages to ham it up without speaking all that loudly; he remains quite soft-spoken and calm throughout the film, but his enjoyment is just streaming from his body language. A prime example is when Harry talks about Toots' messy GroinAttack in blunt terms. Louis chastises him for using such language in a church, but he's obviously enjoying the sacrilege.

* {{Leitmotif}}: The tune to "I Cried For You" keeps haunting Harry. Even Epiphany sings it in the bathtub at one point. [[spoiler: That's because it was Johnny Favorite's most popular song. It makes sense Epiphany's mother would sing it to her.]]
