Trouble in Mind Details


The time is The Future; the place is Rain City, formerly Seattle. The city is a police state, while the citizens have adopted the manner and dress of 1940s gangsters. Recently released from prison, ex-cop [[Performer~P98154~Kris Kristofferson~kriskristofferson]] tries to touch base with his ex-girlfriend [[Performer~P9433~Genevieve Bujold~genevièvebujold]], who runs a 1950s-style cafe. Hoping to make up for past sins, thereby redeeming himself in [[Performer~P9433~Bujold~genevièvebujold]]'s eyes, [[Performer~P98154~Kristofferson~kriskristofferson]] endeavors to save innocent, newly arrived couple [[Performer~P84256~Keith Carradine~keithcarradine]] and [[Performer~P65951~Lori Singer~lorisinger]] from the evil designs of crooked [[Performer~P50922~Joe Morton~joemorton]]. Trouble in Mind strives mightily for a film noir ambience, right down to the presence of a sinister, [[Performer~P28591~Greenstreetesque~sydneygreenstreet]] "fat man," played in male drag (for a change) by [[Performer~P19335~Divine~divine]]. The title tune for Trouble in Mind is sung over the credits by [[Performer~P22545~Marianne Faithful~mariannefaithfull]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
