As an independent film maker based out of Seattle I am keenly aware of the limitations that force both the "indie" writer and director to think in new and creative ways. I purchased Heaven's Neighbors from Indieflix via Amazon having been drawn to it by my familiarity with DJ Perry's other films. I was pleasantly surprised and, to be honest, quite jealous of this wonderfully told story. DJ's other films, while quite good, are no where near the level of Heaven's Neighbors. The story is tight. The acting is first rate. And above all, the character's are believable and sympathetic. After fifteen minutes you are drawn into their world with such finesse and subtlety that you are not even aware that it happened. By the time the closing credits run you feel a sense of emptiness at having to leave that world. I found myself wanting more; wanting to follow the two leads down the road in search of further adventures. And when the credits ended, I felt such jealousy towards the film makers. They had created something special in our limited little world that I wish I was a part of. Buy this film and see what real artists can do.
