Alex Cox | An Introduction to Film
Crescent Arts Centre • Thursday, 16 June – 6pm
Picasso apparently said, “When critics get together, they talk about theory. When painters get together, they talk about turpentine.’ Critics, academics, and theoreticians talk theory. That is what they know. Artists talk about their processes in making art. This is my attempt to apply what I know to a beginning study of film.’
Alex is responsible for directing a host of acclaimed films from Sleep Is for Sissies, Repo Man, Straight to Hell, Walker and Highway Patrolman to Death and the Compass, Revenger’s Tragedy and Searchers 2.0. From 1987 to 1994, he presented the acclaimed BBC TV series ‘Moviedrome’.
