An ambitious but ultimately pretentious film that attempts to mix film noir, Theater of the Absurd, romance, and science fiction but falls flat on almost all counts. It's set in the near future in the mythical town of Rain City. The place is ruled by martial law but populated with 1940s

gangsters and 1950s diners. Hawk (Kris Kristofferson) is an ex-cop who has just come back from jail for having killed a man in self-defense. He looks up his old flame, Wanda (Genevieve Bujold), who is now running a cafe. He would like to put his life together, mind his own business, and have a

pleasant few years. Coop (Keith Carradine) and Georgia (Lori Singer) are a newlywed couple who have come to Rain City to try to find jobs. When work doesn't materialize, Coop gets involved with crook Solo (Joe Morton), soon dealing in stolen goods. When Hawk learns what's transpiring, he takes it

upon himself to save Coop and protect Georgia. TROUBLE IN MIND is offbeat, unique, and interesting, and for that alone it should be noted. It is a shame that none of the elements ever come together, so this film winds up being a beautiful, atmospheric mess.
