Overview: Mickey is looking to recover his losses from a botched counterfeiting transaction and has learned the coordinates of a looming drop by those who burned him. Now, he must persuade his best friend, Jasper, to help him under the ruse of meteorite hunting. But, Jasper has imperative issues of his own. His girlfriend s pregnant and his job as a staff writer for the Los Angeles Chronicle is in peril.
DVD Verdict: For the record, 'Heaven Strewn' is actually a very good movie. In most films of this nature the relationship between the two main characters is something that is either well scripted and then well acted, or hard to swallow and uneasy to watch. But here in 'Heaven Strewn' it is the former and is definitely easy to relate to.
Add to that crime scenarios, suspense, treasure hunts, family, deep friendships, endless love, acts of pure devotion, and batches of good luck; and bad, throw in some high speed chases, a few guns, some drug addicts,some light comedic moments and splash around some beautifully shot scenery and you have a jam-packed 80 minutes of cinematography!
As a friend of ours once said, 'Heaven Strewn' has the same sort of fresh sincerity and lawlessness that can only be achieved by a true storyteller who knows what they are doing around a camera - and the value of having someone's attention from opening frame to end. Indeed, some movies can't pull off stories about human relationships without adding unnecessary stuff into the movie. This one does all that and so much more.
