River of Grass Dirigida por Kelly Reichardt
You could call it an intersection of Badlands, Stranger Than Paradise, Wanda, and the photography of Robert Adams, but Reichardt opens the world of River of Grass into a contemplative space of its own. She even allows us to overhear Cozy’s internal monologue in voiceover, originally a logistical choice since Bowman could only afford to spend seven days on set, but it’s equally as meditative as it is expositional.

Excitement is generated by Ms. Reichardt’s comic lack of affect as well as her feel for landscape and underlying formalism. The compositions are deliberate and often symmetrical; camera movement is minimal. “River of Grass” has a deadpan quality suggestive of Jim Jarmusch’s “Stranger Than Paradise” (1984) — which also featured Florida locations.

While it is a first feature, certainly, foretelling themes in Reichardt’s future works (Wendy and Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff, to name a couple), and as a result, is laden with all manner of first feature tics, River of Grass is curiously, an active rejection of momentum. More so than a traditional story about two down-and-out types looking for a way out, River of Grass is—how do I put this?—a reluctance. A series of false starts set against Florida’s everglades.

¿Qué dicen los demás?

  • msmichel's rating of the film River of Grass

    Reichardt's debut feature finds a lonely married Florida woman craving escape from the life she finds herself in and after a mishap involving a possible murder takes to the road with a like minded loser. What sets her debut apart from the scores of similar themed films is its' authentic feel, lack of glamour and for that matter lack of a road as their journey halts fairly quickly. Solid debut.

  • Mugino's rating of the film River of Grass

    It's a debut with quirky appeal, like a bus stop oddball who tells rambling stories that engage, not because they're interesting but because they're told with unsolicited candor. While I agree it's more of a footnote than a highlight in Reichardt's brilliant filmography, I found myself pondering her choices long after Cozy had driven off the screen.

  • Jason's rating of the film River of Grass

    River of Grass feels somehow like the ultimate quintessential 90s American indie. Unfortunately, it pales in comparison to the movie it perhaps most resembles, Jon Jost's Frameup, which likewise features two decisively hapless wayward criminals on the road and a somewhat whiny (though to these ears entirely endearing) voice-over care of the female lead. Reichart's debut is commendable for its formal integrity.

  • Renton47's rating of the film River of Grass

    Some of the comparisons for this are odd given how removed it feels from similar films of the period. If anything this feels like the anti-'True Romance', and the impact of film crime, noir and violence has an insidious impact on the characters of this film. The losers here are some of cinema's worst criminals, and the idea of trying to escape a claustrophobic place is an early indication of Reichardt's MO.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film River of Grass

    I'm surprised Reichardt has made such an offbeat but melancholically funny Bonny/Cride-ish road movie against tranquilly meditative films she made recently. This movie has odd elements as her film like long narration representing protagonist's annui, excessive beats of jazz dram & loose humor. But also has her obsession with repression of woman, wasteful journey & infinity called prison in America. Impressive debut.

  • Thomas's rating of the film River of Grass

    This is worth a watch if you've enjoyed some of Reichardt's later works. It is, however, quite removed from her later films, not just geographically but also in terms of tone and narrative motivation. Nevertheless, as far as themes and issues are concerned, it sits right alongside the rest of her unique output.

  • Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film River of Grass

    Kelly Reichardt's directorial debut is an early example of her exquisite framing and is, as of yet, her sole display of her comedic chops, which are really effective!

  • VincentVendetta's rating of the film River of Grass

    A typical product of American independent cinema of the 1990's, with clichés that Sundance has jammed down our throats for the past 30 years, but River of Grass stands much closer to the classic lovers-on-the-run films of New Hollywood (Bonnie & Clyde, Sugarland Express, Badlands) than to the colourful miserabilism of today.
