“These were all formidable films.   Visually extremely striking, aurally distinctive, wonderfully acted, violent, mystifying, perversely inspirational.” – Alex Cox on the Spaghetti Western

Alex Cox is a British filmmaker, screenwriter, actor, and nonfiction author praised for his idiosyncratic style and approach to scripts. His long list of credits, ranging from major studio films to cult classics to what he terms “micro cinema,” include Repo Man (1984), Sid and Nancy (1986), Straight to Hell (1986), Walker (1987), Highway Patrolman (1991), Revengers Tragedy (2002) and Searchers 2.0 (2007). He is the author of three film-related books, X Films: True Confessions of a Radical Filmmaker, Ten Thousand Ways to Die: A Director’s Take on the Spaghetti Western, and Alex Cox’s Introduction to Film: A Director’s Perspective. He also writes regularly for The Guardian, Film Comment and Sight and Sound. One of his most recent projects was the 2016 Western drama, Tombstone Rashomon, filmed at Old Tucson Studios.
