Storyline

Will you kill for a good story? If you are James Cooper, a 28 year old copy editor with dreams of literary stardom, you will. After all, your girlfriend was just crowned the "voice of a new America" by the New York literati, and you waste your days editing third-rate textbooks in a dreary Chicago basement. Your first book got panned. Your agent just dumped you. You have no future. But when your girlfriend's corpse ends up sprawled beneath your bedroom window, you finally know what to write about. Crime Fiction is the story of murder, betrayal and outrageous artistic fortune. Written by Anthem

Crime Fiction doesn't look that bad actually - it's a weird combination of comedy and crime movie with dirty low budget set at $160 000 which hardly allowed producers to hire professional actors, but it's quite popular for some reason. Two channel AC3 audio is included within this 1 CD rip.

Crime Fiction was written by current Comparative Literature Ph.D. student Jonathan Ullyot and is described as a "perverted crime drama" by the filmmakers. The plot of Crime Fiction centers on James Cooper, a young literary failure, who is forced to relocate to Chicago from New York City after his first novel flops. "After an argument with his out-of-state girlfriend ends in murder, James's luck takes a turn. He buries her body in a cornfield, writes a best-selling novel that documents his crime and becomes an instant literary celebrity,"
