30th Anniversary Screening


BasilicaScope, in its second year, runs Sept 19 & 20, 2014, and dedicates its entire run to Alex Cox with his cult classics Repo Man, Straight to Hell Returns, and Walker. A visionary filmmaker who made the 1980s all the more bearable for us, Cox masterfully used pinpoint satire and a rambunctious stable of actors to illuminate the sleazy politics of the era. Cox will be live in Hudson for the Festival.

Basilica Scope digs into the visceral aspects of motion pictures by celebrating films that explore the furthest extremes—from remote landscapes, unconventional perspectives, fanatic personalities, radical examinations of film’s materiality, to the blood and emotion that create it. BasilicaScope presents extraordinary films during its weekend-long summer festival in a reclaimed 19th century factory.


THE FILMS

Repo Man (Alex Cox | 92 min.)
"Repo Man" is one of those movies that slips through the cracks and gives us all a little weirdo fun. It is the first movie I know about that combines (1) punk teenagers, (2) automobile repossessors, and (3) aliens from outer space. This is the kind of movie that baffles Hollywood, because it isn't made from any known formula
and doesn't follow the rules."

- Roger Ebert
