Trouble In Mind is one of those offbeat american movies that reminds me of how great American Films can be when not directly influenced by corporate greed with the sole priority to make money. This is a very weird, interesting flick about RAIN CITY, a fictional city, which follows an ex-cop (Kris Kristofferson) just released from prison, and a young couple from the country who comes to the city to make money (Keith Carradine & Lori Singer), among a few other various characters. Rain City is really it's own character in the film. It's a moody, wet place that really affects the various characters of the film. It's an odd 80's meets 50's atmosphere with Noir-type dialogue that is endlessly quotable. The film is almost an enigma, as it has tons of moments that are never explained but rather just meant to exist in this fictional, nightmarish future where every character is a complete loner just trying to get by. Keith Carradine's character Coop is particularly interesting in that we watch him go through a complete transformation from a flannel wearing, city hating country folk to a hair done up, suit wearing, city gangster-type. Troub;e In Mind is an endlessly fascinating experience which I imagine gets better with multiple viewings because of it's caped mysticism. Pairing this one with Blade Runner, would make an interesting Double Feature for sure.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
