Director Bio

Alex Cox (b. 1954) is a British film director, screenwriter and actor. He studied Radio, Film and TV at the University of Bristol. His early career successes include Repo Man (1984) and Sid and Nancy (1986).


Executive produced by Michael Nesmith of Monkees fame, Alex Cox’s off-beat science-fiction/road movie/comedy starring Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton tells the story of a young man who becomes involved in the risky repossession of a 1964 Chevy Malibu with something extraterrestrial in the boot. Featuring a classic punk soundtrack including a dynamic theme by Iggy Pop, Cox’s irreverent genre mash-up is one of the biggest cult films of the 1980s, exploring classic conspiracy theories and taking aim at politics, religion and consumerism in the USA.
