Independent Film Week: CRIME WAVE

SUN, NOV 30 / 9 pm
Dir. John Paizs | Canada 1986 | 80min. | 35mm

A young director intent on making “the greatest color crime movie ever” can’t seem to finish his script–he has a beginning and an end, but he can’t quite figure out the middle. The daughter of his landlord, excited to have a real “movie person” living over their garage, tries to help by putting him in touch with a man who wants to collaborate on a script–the strange “Dr. Jolly.”

—————–

John Paizs (born in 1957) is a director, writer and actor from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In 1985 his much-celebrated independent comedy Crime Wave was presented at the Toronto International Film Festival. He was the male lead and also wrote and directed the film. He worked on several TV series, but hasn’t made another feature film until 1999’s Top of the Food Chain, a stylish, low-budget sendup of Golden Age ’50s science fiction movies. John is currently the Director in Residence at the Canadian Film Centre.
