This episode is brought to you by Crystal Meth Papsi, enjoy a refreshing new Papsi.  Papsi.  Drink.  Drink it now.  Film blogger, editor and all-around nice guy Filip ONell joins me for an incredibly fun discussion on cult British filmmaker Alex Cox. Of course we sing the praises of REPO MAN, but we dig even deeper into his other work including the acclaimed SID & NANCY as well as the underappreciated WALKER, HIGHWAY PATROLMAN & THREE BUSINESSMEN.  I had a blast watching some of these for the first time, even if they are all far from perfect films.  I briefly get to know Filip in the introduction since he is the first guest I've had on from Sweden, as well as an inspiring filmmaker and lifelong cinephile!  So glad he got in touch with me and decided to cover an underrated director that I'm excited to explore even further.  You gotta love the Repo Man theme from Iggy Pop at the top of this show, as well as a lot of soundtrack choices from Cox as well!  This episode is brought to you by Crystal Meth Papsi, enjoy a refreshing new Papsi.  Papsi.  Drink.  Drink it now.
