Storyline

Angie has flashbacks while working with the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon. She replays her tormented past through a sexual encounter with an actor that becomes angry and assaultive. Her brother Kurt watches from the closet. Angie attacks him, then turns her anger inward and attempts suicide. Detective Purdue investigates the crime scene. When his search turns up drug paraphernalia and a large stash of money, Purdue pursues the case. His interest in the case is exacerbated by the recent suicide of his daughter from a drug overdose. Angie is placed under the psychiatric care of Nathan Andrews, a clinical psychologist. Andrews tries to make sense of Angie's intrapsychic world, while Purdue relentlessly pursues the criminal case. What the two gradually unravel in Angie's and Kurt's history draws them both in beyond the boundaries of their professions. Angie's and Kurt's past catches up with them. Mick Callaway, their stepfather, stalks the young victimized innocents, seeking ... Written by David Oas

Interesting but flawed
22 February 2005 | by gentlewaySee all my reviews

A Clinical Psychologist turned movie-maker? The first finished product of this interesting career transposition is Raspberry Heaven, written and directed by David Oas, Ph.D. The good news is that there is rich substance to be found in this psychological thriller. The bad news is that you may have to work to get to it. The film is filled with flaws. It is awkward and often amateurish, too obviously the work of a fledgling team. Dr. Oas seems overly absorbed in an intricate story which ends up being told in convoluted fashion. Still, a background ambiance of authenticity permeates and piques interest. Psychologist Oas has been there and infuses the film with insider knowledge of a cadre of main characters, bound together through pain and ghosts, trying to help in spite of themselves. There is transcendence prowling about in the periphery that is worth noting as well as the important question of who will help society's wounded helpers. Keep at it, Dr. Oas! As for prospective viewers, check this out and look beyond the good doctor's rookie errors. I bet his next movie will see the movie-maker gaining more ground on the Psychologist.
