Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand
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.
