River of Grass + Q&A with Kelly Reichardt
A lost gun and a bored housewife feature in Kelly Reichardt’s bold 1994 debut.
Dir Kelly Reichardt
With Lisa Bowman, Larry Fessenden, Dick Russell, Michael Buscemi
This disarming first feature about a lost gun and a bored housewife who just can’t escape the Florida Everglades flips the Godard principle ‘all you need for a movie is a gun and a girl’ playfully on its head. More ragged and wilful than the films that follow, River of Grass presents a reversal of genre and gender tropes and love of landscape, signalling Reichardt’s ongoing preoccupations.
