X-Films: True Confessions of a Radical Filmmaker

by Alex Cox
£19.99   hardback  I B Tauris & Co Ltd (2008)

X-Films: True Confessions of a Radical Filmmaker by Alex Cox Philip French has called Alex Cox, 'British Cinema's oldest enfant terrible'; it's a description that its recipient fully approves of. He is a radical, international, independent filmmaker, who is also an insightful commentator on cinema now, and expert on how to make independent films in the shadow of global Hollywood. He grew up with a passion for the pictures, and this book has as its centre the filmmaking autobiography of a fine director, leading us through ten major films he has made.
He takes us to varied locations, from Liverpool to Mexico, LA to Tokyo, as well as Nicaragua, where he made Walker with the cooperation of the Sandinista government - and Arizona, where his latest film Searchers 2.0 is set. X-Films is full of fresh ideas, rare insights into many films, and the on-and-off-set of a truly radical maker of films and the people he works with.
X-Films is also the an inspirational working manual for the independent filmmaker. Enfant terrible he may be, but Alex Cox is also ahead of the game and is a pioneer and promoter of new forms of filmmaking for the cultural revolutionaries of the 21st century.
