Abstract:

"Alex Cox is the genuine article: a radical independent filmmaker who is also a good writer, an insightful commentator on contemporary cinema, and an expert critic of the power of Hollywood. Enfant terrible he may be, but Alex Cox is a pioneer and promoter of new forms of filmmaking for the cultural revolutionaries of the twenty-first century." "X Films has as its center the filmmaking autobiography of a fine director - the journey through all his major films and how they were made. Cox takes us to varied locations, including the U.S., Mexico, and Nicaragua, where he made Walker with the cooperation of the Sandinista government. He is full of fresh ideas and rare insights into many films of different genres and the people he has worked with, including such greats as Dennis Potter and Harry Dean Stanton."--Jacket.
