Big Muddy 

A Canadian neo-noir that, despite nice scenery, can only end in trouble

Jefferson Mineo's slow-burning neo-noir finds trouble in the Canadian heartland, as various members of Saskatchewan's demi-monde collide. At the center is Martha (Nadia Litz), a single mom and grifter, and the action plays out in bars, the horse track and run-down farmhouses perched on a beautiful prairie. It's a new release that's reminiscent of 1990s crime indies, and Litz is great as the tiny but fiercely willed woman, unapologetic about her poor life choices.
