Storyline

In the metropolis of Rain City which is run under a military state, Wanda's Café is the meeting point for several individuals, who, in the words of Lt. Gunther of the police department, are converging on "the shit (they're) wallowing in". Former Rain City police officer John Hawkins - Hawk to his friends - has just been released from prison where he served eight years for murder, a crime to which he readily admits. He killed Fat Adolph, a mobster, in an effort to clean up the streets and protect the ones he loved. He has returned to Wanda's - Wanda who was his former lover - to restart his life. Straightforward Wanda still loves Hawk, but is not in love with him, and as such offers him a place to stay with no strings. Wanda has just hired largely innocent Georgia to work in the café. Penniless Georgia and her husband Coop have just arrived in Rain City with their infant son Spike in the run-down camper in which they live. They believed moving to the city - their first time ever in ... Written by Huggo

neo noirish look of the rain drenched, neon light streets
30 October 2008 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Very fine moody film, made after, 'Choose Me' and good as that is I have always preferred this. In many ways (until the end) a fairly quite film with people drifting in and out of each others lives. Laid back they may be but there are great performances from Keith Carradine, Genevieve Bujold, Kris Kristofferson and even the lovely Lori Singer, who has probably never bettered this performance. Despite the strange neo noirish look of the rain drenched, neon light streets and signs of decay there are also hints at some future setting and the ambiguity coupled with Kristoffersen's model making constantly create a dreamlike quality to proceedings. The soundtrack is immaculate and the use of the crackling elder Marianne Faithful inspired. Divine is brilliant as the chief baddie and should the uncultured out there drop off for lack of constant action be assured you will awake at the end.
