REPO MAN
1984, Universal Studios, 92 min, United States, Dir: Alex Cox

“It happens sometimes. People just explode. Natural causes.” Veteran repo warhorse Bud (Harry Dean Stanton, in one of his funniest roles) breaks in new repo man Otto (Emilio Estevez) while tracking a vintage Chevy Malibu driven by a lobotomized nuclear physicist (Fox Harris). But the two soon find that ruthless feds are hoping to retrieve the car and get the radioactive alien corpse out of the trunk!


Los Angeles Premiere!

TOMBSTONE RASHOMON
2017, 83 min, USA, Dir: Alex Cox

Alex Cox’s most recent feature is an experiment with the Western genre that throws the established history of the shoot-out at the O.K. Corral into disarray. When a time-traveling documentary film crew embarks to record the famous event, they arrive a day late and must interview participants and witnesses to piece together their conflicting details of the experience. Cox’s attempt to create “the most comprehensive and unusual gunfight picture ever made” becomes a prism of diverging narratives in direct homage to Akira Kurosawa’s classic RASHOMON.
