Raimi's Crimewave

I just posted this in parts on my Twitter account:

Watched Sam Raimi's CRIMEWAVE last night. Friend's VHS, with Greek subtitles! Just too much stuff blowing up, too many wisecracks, too many funny sounds when something stupid happens, too long climax. Overall more like a bad Tex Avery cartoon. But the Coen brothers' handmark is visible, with quirky characters, weird neonoirism and bad taste. They did their brand of total craziness much, much better in RAISING ARIZONA. So, in my book, Raimi still very overrated.
