Product Overview

Based on Jonathan Raymond's short story and featuring a soundtrack from Yo La Tengo, Kelly Reichardt's second feature chornicles a short camping trip by two old friends to a quasi-mystical oasis, the Bagby Hot Springs in Oregon's lush Cascade Mountains. The actors in this Cain-Abel story are Kurt (Will Oldham), a post-hippie with never-present promise; and Mark (Daniel London), the father-to-be, intent on putting the Kurt part of his life behind him, but also silently nostalgic for a more carefree, radical past.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review A camping trip shared by two longtime friends provides the basis for a beautifully nuanced study in friendship and the irretrievability of the past in "Old Joy." Second feature by director Kelly Reichardt trades the humid Florida swamplands of her impressive 1994 debut, "River of Grass," for the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest, but maintains the earlier film's richly atmospheric feel for regional American landscapes and the characters that populate them...Photographed by cinematographer Peter Sillen in Super 16mm (transferred to HD video for pic's Sundance premiere), the colors in "Old Joy" are radiant: deep sky blues, fiery reds and sunburst yellows. No less striking is pic's sound design, in which everything from a vacuum cleaner whirring to a cricket chirping is rendered with uncommon crispness and clarity.

Quotes
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com ...the contemplative power of Buddhist meditation...masterly, riveting.
Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly ...the physical and emotional landscapes it travels are as broad, deep and mysterious as the human psyche itself.
