River of Grass has all the elements of a conventional road movie: a car, a gun, criminal plans, and young lovers on the run from an angry father who also happens to be a suspended police officer. But writer and director Kelly Reichardt has instead taken these familiar elements and fashioned an anti-road movie, a deadpan film that is more existentialist comedy than crime drama. The young lovers in question are Cozy, the cop's daughter, and Lee Ray, a shady character from the wrong end of town.

This minimalist yet revisionist indie feature (Reichardt's debut) is a highlight of the 1994 Sundance Film Fest.
There's an element of wit in Reichardt's minimalism here that isn't present in her later, more somber work.
