It used to be tough trying to make a go of it in Oregon, yet skilled chef Cookie Figowitz and enterprising immigrant King-Lu come up with an offbeat business plan to pave their way towards the American dream. Kelly Reichardt’s latest piece is an easy-going buddy film, which doubles as an endearing Western. It tells the tale of affable male friendship, a melancholic cow, and the chilly landscape of the Pacific Northwest, where ambiguous smiles mingle with the occasional sound of gunshot.
