Crime Wave @ Toronto Underground Cinema

Join us for an impossibly funky evening at the Toronto Underground Cinema. Mike White, cinematic provocateur and author of Impossibly Funky: A Cashiers du Cinemart Collection will discuss his book.

For 14 years, White’s movie zine championed offbeat and obscure movies like John Paizs’s Canadian classic Crime Wave.

“Steven Penny (director John Paizs) is a quiet man. So quiet, in fact, that he never says a word throughout the entire film. Steven is a filmmaker who is trying to write the script for his next film, titled CRIME WAVE, which he hopes will be “the best colour crime movie ever”. Aside from the fact that he is only able to write by streetlight, Steven also suffers from a writer’s block that allows him to write countless beginnings and endings to CRIME WAVE, but has trouble writing middles worth keeping.” – Skizz Cyzyk, “Tragically Obscure: John Paizs’ (The Big) Crimewave, Impossibly Funky.
