Perfect for what it is
Scrap Heaven is a beautifully-directed, well-acted, tightly-structured film about 3 people who are completely different except for their grim view of life, and they each want to cause their own form of revenge on the world. Their paths cross one night and then continue to cross willingly and unwillingly over the duration of the movie, and their similarities become more apparent as the film goes on. The end to each character’s story isn’t completely satisfying, and there is a lot of vagueness regarding certain motivations of the people in this film, but all in all the film remains a clever, dark, hilarious, and DIFFERENT viewpoint of modern Japanese society…
Yes, themes of emotional detachment, societal servitude, repressed thoughts and feelings are nothing new in Japanese films… but this film explores all these themes with a sense of humor and some ridiculousness. The end is a bit predictable, and the film seems to sometimes wander when trying to make its point, but I can safely say I was never bored with this film… and I’ve thought about it nonstop since I finished watching it. Just a really great film.
Also: I noticed, at times, a strange parallel between this film and Fight Club, actually, and I’m sure I’m alone in this. Some of the acts of anarchy, and one of the main character’s blatant Tyler Durden-isms (including his choice of clothes) had me wondering. It’s nothing that crazy or distracting from the rest of the film, just worth noting.
Dark, funny, humanistic look at modern life
It makes me sad that there is only one review for this movie and it’s an inaccurate vague review that doesn’t really address the movie.
Scrap Heaven is a tight, interesting, character driven story about three strangers tossed together when they all end up on a doomed bus ride. But that’s just the way they met. The moments of dark comedy effortlessly lead right into moments of poignancy. For me, this hit all the ‘indie movie’ buttons.
It’s not an action flick, it’s not a comedy, it’s not an outright drama, it’s not a romance movie, it’s not a buddy movie, it’s not a cop drama, it’s not an outsider movie but it’s a little bit of all of that and really rings true when it all concludes. Overall it feels very human and real. Never overplayed and it never tries too hard. Come with your open mind but not on a day when you can’t take a dark movie.
