September 29: El Patrullero aka Highway Patrolman

Thursday September 29 | 8PM El Patrullero Mexico 1991 d. Alex Cox with Roberto Sosa, Bruno Bichir, Zaide Silvia Gutiérrez and Vanessa Bauche. In Spanish with English subtitles. Colour. 104m

“In dispassionately examining a mundane life, Highway Patrolman…is very much in keeping with the mood of earlier films by Mr. Cox, like Repo Man and Sid and Nancy. Without entering into Pedro’s innermost thoughts and feelings, the movie looks at the world through his essentially innocent eyes. More than anything, it is a character study of a contemporary naif with decent human impulses and vague aspirations toward noble service who is driven to the edge by the grubby realities he is forced to accept.” Stephen Holden
