Repo Man director Alex Cox went south of the border to film this dramatic tale of a rookie member of Mexico’s national highway patrol, who struggles to keep on the straight and narrow in a department rife with corruption. This new digital restoration overseen by the director heralds the return of a largely overlooked and underappreciated film by the great cult director.

“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, New York Times

“There is an epic quality, moral as well as visual, to the hero’s odyssey that recalls the Westerns of John Ford and such John Huston films as ‘Treasure of the Sierra Madre’ and ‘Under the Volcano.'” – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
