Alex Cox

Cult director and actor Alex Cox has released his latest film, Repo Chick (2009), which premiered at the Venice Film Festival. Possessing a highly distinctive visual style and provocative approach to narrative film, the director first made his reputation with the classic films Repo Man (1984) and Sid & Nancy (1986). His film Walker (1987), starring Ed Harris, broke new ground as an abrasive postmodern comment on the USA's military interventions in Latin America. In addition to directing twelve feature films, as well as documentaries and presenting the BBC's Moviedrome series and acting in over twenty films, Alex Cox has written perceptive books on the Spaghetti Western, 10,000 Ways to Die (2008), and X Films: True Confessions of a Radical Filmmaker (2008).  The event will be introduced by organizer Prof. Alan Marcus
