Scrap Heaven Reviews

[Director] Lee's visual jazziness and cast are compelling, but nothing can compensate for a deflated, toilet-humored script that negates its potential for sharp social satire with increasingly adolescent and superficial vilifying philosophies.

In the writer and director Sang-il Lee’s Scrap Heaven, three strangers share a general dissatisfaction with life -- and a fateful ride aboard a hijacked bus.

Does not advance much beyond its expected generic elements.

Sang-Il Lee's Scrap Heaven stands as something of a companion piece to David Fincher's Fight Club.

[Director] Lee also helmed Hula Girls, a clichéd comedy that I hated (one star). With Scrap Heaven, he redeems himself.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Sang-il Lee's anarchic drama is shot through with spasms of dark comedy, as the lives of three strangers intersect at the point of a gun.
