Three Businessmen Highway Patrolman Film Poster


Double-bill of films from cult British director Alex Cox. In 'Three Businessmen' (1998), when art dealers Bennie (Miguel Sandoval) and Frank (Alex Cox) have no luck trying to get a meal in the abandoned dining room of a Liverpool hotel they set out into the city looking for something to eat. However, for one reason or another, each of the restaurants they visit proves unsatisfactory and before they know it they have travelled halfway around the world, caught up in their trivial prattle, and still without finding any food. This all changes with the dawn, when they meet another hungry businessman and eat breakfast at a stall in the street. In 'Highway Patrolman' (1992), Pedro (Roberto Soza) is a patrol cop who, fresh out of police academy, gets assigned to a lonely stretch of road in Northern Mexico. He strives to remain honest and uphold the law, but his wife, his friends and even his superiors give him a hard time until he eventually begins to accept bribes. However, when his friend is killed by drug dealers Pedro decides that enough is enough and sets out to seek his vengeance. In Spanish with English subtitles.
