Crimewave (aka XYZ Murders)

So someone hooked me up with a copy of this movie:

Friday night found Jason sitting in his apartment watching Crimewave (or, as Sam Raimi and the Coen Brothers wanted to call it, XYZ Murders) and he enjoyed it. Think live-action cartoon. There were parts where it felt like Raimi was a little restrained (which I think was one of the issues with the studio that has led to Raimi and crew to practically disown the movie) but there were plenty of parts where you could just tell it was a Raimi/Coen film. If you can find a copy, watch it. Unfortunately, the only DVD release seems to be from China and probably not entirely legal. Ah well.
