Storyline

A struggling architect, being sued for divorce by his wife and struggling with booze and gambling, finds work remodeling a friend's strip club, the Paradise. There he meets a transsexual stripper who is bothered by accurate, but extremely violent visions of future events. The increasingly violent visions start including the architect, who doesn't believe in the prophesy. One who does however is a psychiatrist who is seeing both the stripper and the architect and is sleeping with the ex-wife. He uses the prophecies for his own financial gain. Finally the scenes from the vision move into reality amidst many plot turns. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

How in the world did this excellent film not get released?!
6 December 1999 | by (Manhattan) – See all my reviews

Saw "Heaven" on a strong recommendation though I'd never heard of it. The story's centered around a stripper named Heaven and the relationships formed around her, a compulsive gambler, his wife and the stripjoint owner. Scary, suspenseful, funny and altogether quite unique. It's a great film. Brilliantly directed, written and acted. It's recently been released on video. Seek it out!
