Episode 20: Crime Wave

Special Guests: Eva Kovaks, Neil Lawrie & Greg Klymkiw

Then, from the north, came John Paizs's wonderful, quirky comedy from 1985, Crime Wave. Mike and Mondo Justin are joined this week by Skizz Cyzyk in discussing the Canadian classic about frustrated screenwriter Steven Penny (Paizs) who struggles to complete the "best colour crime movie" while living above the garage of Kim (Eva Kovaks). He can come up with great beginnings and endings but it's the middles that challenge him. Leave that up to the advice of Dr. Jolly (Neil Lawrie).

  1. Great podcast on one of the most important, yet least known, films ever made in Canada.
