The tiny town of San Pedro de los Saguaros needs a new Mayor, as the populace has assassinated several. As a reward for his party loyalty, the ruling governor gives hapless junk dealer Damián Alcázar the post. An honest if idealistic man, Vargas arrives with his beautiful, ambitious wife Gloria. Picked for his stupidity, he quickly discovers that bribes, blackmail, gratuitous fines, and other abuses of authority are the only way to get things done, and soon transforms himself from ineffectual stooge to paragon of corruption--or, a successful politician. Along the way, he encounters a surly madam, a moralizing doctor, a mercenary priest, and an opportunistic gringo. He justifies his actions with a motto learned from his party leader, who quotes Herod's Law, which is (if somewhat reworded), "Either you screw them or you get screwed."

Alex Cox's Introduction to film : a director's perspective by Alex Cox( Book )
4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
Emerging filmmakers need to know the basics of their art form: the language of the camera, and lenses, the different crew roles, the formats, the aspect ratios. They also need to know some bare-bones theory: what an auteur is, what montage is, what genres are. But, even more urgently, young filmmakers need answers to their questions{u2014}What lens was used? How did they do that effect? Who paid for that picture? How did they get it past the censor? Most important, Alex Cox believes that all filmmakers require serious grounding in film. You cannot be a great artist if you aren't versed in great art. And this doesn't just apply to the cinema. This book is for aspiring filmmakers, but also for students, and for people generally interested in grounding themselves in this particular art form{u2014}from a filmmaker's perspective. According to Coz, "I believe 100% that a reasonably educated and intelligent person in any country of the world should be able to have a conversation about Luis Buñuel, about Akira Kurosawa, about Stanley Kubrick, about Fellini or Bergman, and talk knowledgeably about at least one of their films. Read this book, watch the films, and you can!"
X films : true confessions of a radical filmmaker by Alex Cox( Book )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"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
