Trouble In Mind (1985) Filmed in Seattle, this neo-noir film follows an ex-cop just released from
jail after serving time for a murder sentence as he returns to the mean streets of the fictional
“Rain City.” Flipping between reality and unreality, the leading characters all display traits of the
opposite of what they seem to be.
Directed and written by Alan Rudolph, the film stars Kris Kristofferson, Keith Carradine, Geneviève Bujold, Lori Singer with an out-of-drag appearance by Divine. It won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Cinematography, and was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
