See this film retrospective: "The Anarchic Imagination of Alex Cox" @ the HFA

After the oneiric convolutions of Guy Maddin, "The Anarchic Imagination of Alex Cox," a retrospective series playing at the Harvard Film Archive through June 11, should be a piece of cake. Today they'll be screening Repo Man (1984; 7 pm), Cox's first and perhaps best film. In it Emilio Estevez plays the title debt collector whose life goes off the tracks when he repos a car with a surprise in the trunk. It's anarchic filmmaking at its best. Also screening is the politically anarchic Walker (1987; 9 pm), in which Ed Harris plays the real-life mercenary who took over Nicaragua in 1855 for a cabal of US capitalists. The Archive is in the Carpenter Center, 24 Quincy St, Cambridge | Friday, June 1 @ 7 pm | $9; $7 students, seniors |
