Crime Wave

It's our 4th year anniversary, so we're going back into our archive to show one of MOBS' personal favorites!

From "Kids in the Hall" director John Paizs comes a surreal comedic obscurity from 1985. There's no true way to try to convey this film in words, but the general plot centers on a quiet young man (also played by Paizs) who is intent on writing "the greatest color crime movie ever made," but can only write beginnings and endings - and those only by streetlight. After befriending the young Kim, she tries to help him complete his opus, but fails. Throughout the film, the various beginnings, endings, and rejected "middles" are dramatized. Throw in a mysterious and psychotic script doctor named Dr. Jolly, a private club for imaginary friends, a quarantined city -- and you still won't come close to the idea of what this film is really like.

"Genuinely unique--every time you think you know where it's going, it veers off in some strange, and strangely fascinating, direction." - Baltimore City Paper
