I was sitting in my comparative mythologies class about a week ago when the mention of a single name drew my attention. The professor was going over a few key points in classical Greek mythology when I heard him mention Boreas. Boreas? Where had I heard that name before? It took me a while and then I remembered this movie I had watched not too long ago called Heaven's Neighbors. I couldn't wait to get back to my apartment and check it out again. I liked the movie and I was curious if this were just a coincidence. A quick review of the movie confirmed that this was no coincidence. Every major character's name either comes from Greek mythology, Christian history, or derives it's source from western civilization. Naturally I had to delve deeper. I was soon aware of another level to this little movie. Another level that I had missed in the first viewings. Suffice it to say my second semester thesis is going to be entitled: Western mythological motifs in the movie Heaven's Neighbors. I would like to that the film makers for such fertile ground for my research project. I am sure that I will be moving over ground never crossed before! On a side note I must tell you that I got this movie as a bootleg from a friend. Other researches have turned yup the fact that it is available from indieflix.com and as yet it has no major distributor. This is a wrong that must be corrected. This movie deserves to be distributed through major channels. The depth of the characters and the story are worthy of so much better. Somebody pick this movie up and get it into the stores!
