Trivia

Lynne Stopkewich said that Gary, as written on paper, was more one-dimensional, but Callum Keith Rennie was determined to make him more real, so he added genuine feelings of confusion/remorse to Gary's apology. See more »

subtle and haunting
6 January 2005 | by octomagnetoSee all my reviews

If you're a fan of Molly Parker then you definitely should see this film. Ms. Parker proves in this role as she does in the HBO series "Deadwood", that she is an accomplished, diverse and talented actress.

Suspicious River is gripping story of a woman who as a hotel clerk, begins to seduce her male guest. However she allows herself to become prey to one of the more unstable guest as she becomes ever more recklessness.

Well shot with gray, melancholy scenes of the wooded North West. Muted colors, and misty landscapes are apropos to the story.

The soundtrack of indy music contains several interesting songs.

If you enjoy independent film this is worth renting.
