Kris Kristofferson, as an ex-cop released from prison and now needing to rebuild his life, adds little to the film Trouble in Mind (1985). Divine (remember him?) adds even less.

Directed and written by Alan Rudolph, the picture is a weird film noir which grows dismayingly feeble and dopey. Rudolph does some nice things—images, I mean—with beautiful Lori Singer‘s face and body, but her role is hardly astutely created. Too bad I couldn’t know Trouble in Mind was trouble when it first walked in. (Apologies to Taylor Swift.)
