Editorial Reviews

In the fictional and hypnotic Rain City, ex-cop Hawk (Kris Kristofferson) has just been released from prison after serving hard time for killing a man. Meanwhile, a young down-on-his-luck father, Coop (Keith Carradine), and his radiant, innocent wife, Georgia (Lori Singer), head toward the city with their new baby in search of a new life.

Littered with eccentric gangsters and thugs, Rain City serves as almost a side street to human evolution. At the center of it all is Wandas, a dive diner run by Hawks ex (Genevieve Bujold), where the characters lives will intersect, changing them forever.

Written and directed by Alan Rudolph, Trouble In Mind is set somewhere in the future and the past of countless classic film noirs, creating a completely realized neo-noir masterpiece. Feature has been newly restored from original film elements.

In my earlier review of another one of Alan Rudolph's movies, "The Moderns", I cited this film as being the ONLY movie to cover what life was like in the weird period in western pop history between 1975 and 1982. This was a period when David Bowie's bizarre influence permeated just about everything having to do with American and Western European night life and sexual rebellion. NOBODY sought to document this strange footnote in the 20th century timeline other than Rudolph, and he does an excellent job!
This is one of a trilogy of movies Rudolph directed when he was "hot", just after he had developed his own style, apart from Robert Altman, his mentor. "Choose Me" and "The Moderns" were the other two. (To appreciate the difference that eventually set the two apart, rent Rudolph's "Welcome To L.A", which could have EASILY been an Altman movie, and compare it to any one of these three.) Unfortunately, since these three movies, Rudolph hasn't done much that could be considered landmark, with the exception of "Mrs. Parker and The Vicious Circle". A damned shame, really.
The story centers around Kris Kristofferson, starring in one of his few really good movies, as a disgraced cop who gets paroled back into Seattle society after serving time for murdering a crime lord for harassing an old flame of his, Wanda, played by Genevieve Bujold, whom he reunites with after he gets out. Wanda owns a popular diner haunted by weirdos and hangers-on over which Kristofferson takes an apartment she offers to him out of gratitude. Into this mix comes Coop, played by Keith Carradine, a young married with the requisite financial problems all working class young marrieds face: New baby, new expenses, a wife to support....

No DVD domestically for this title; I bought the obscure Dutch region 2 DVD and it's worth it. Far superior to the director's (Alan Rudolph) later attempt at noir, Love at Large (1990), this film's set in Rain City (meaning Seattle, but the map in the police lieutenant's office actually says "Rain City"). The lieutenant, played by George Kirby, is the former boss of a disgraced cop, Kris Kristofferson, who goes by the name of Hawk, short for John Hawkins.

Hawk's just been let out of the slammer and makes his way to his old flame's place, Wanda's Cafe. Genevieve Bujold is the owner and while Love at Large made fun of chemistry between characters, thereby spoiling any magnetism it could have had, Trouble in Mind plays it straight and so the viewer feels it when Hawk and Wanda are together.

But Wanda ultimately drops Hawk; he's the past she doesn't want to continue with. Meanwhile, Keith Carradine and Lori Singer as a young couple struggling in a country shack, move to the city after Coop (Carradine) swipes some money from an open safe at a place that won't hire him. Coop falls in with the wrong crowd, initially typified by Joe Morton in a great performance as Solo, the kind of fast-talking nervous street crime guy always looking for somebody to lean on, who finds it in Coop. The two form an unlikely team focused on stealing jewelry.

Circumstances bring Hawk and Georgia, Coop's wife, together after Coop undergoes a radical change in hairstyle, clothing, and taste in women. The bad guys, played by Divine and Dirk Blocker sporting a ridiculous wig and a phony growly voice (Hilly Blue and Rambo, respectively), make things tough for Coop and Hawk both.

Alan Rudolph has created a fascinating off-beat look at America, through the eyes of a cynical ex-cop, Kris Kristofferson, who goes by the name of Hawk. The setting seems to lie in a no-man's land between the past and the future, as Seattle is transformed into a bleak, dreary city under martial law. Hawk reluctantly finds himself as a guardian angel for a young woman, Lori Singer, and her baby, who have been abandoned by her erstwhile husband, David Carradine, who rather absurdly gets drug into the dark underworld of Rain City. Hawk's old flame, Genevieve Bujold, provides most of the emotional punch in this movie, running a diner inhabited by local rif-raf, which serves as Hawk's hideout. The story is cartoonish, but that is part of its charm. The dead-pan performances carry the movie through its rather predictable twists and turns, highlighted by a comicly nuanced performance by the great Divine as the kingpin of the Rain City underworld. The Mark Isham score is given haunting refrains by Marianne Faithfull. Rudolph seemed to have fun with this movie. It moves along well with a perfectly inane closing scene in which Hawk brings the proper forces back in order.

To fans: amazon mentions that the Shout DVD is 1;33. Not true, don't worry. TROUBLE IN MIND has been restored to its original 1:85 ratio and it looks great. This edition also includes a revealing, hour long documentary including Alan Rudolph, Genevieve Bujold, Kris Kristofferson, Keith Carradine, Lori Singer, Joe Morton, Mark Isham, Toyomuchi Kurita, and all. A one of a kind piece that looks even better now. But then, since the film itself is about a past future...
