Brand New 4K Restoration - Supervised by the Film's Director! From the director of Repo Man, Sid and Nancy, Straight to Hell and Walker comes "Maverick Director Alex Cox's Finest Film to Date" (Los Angeles Times). Against his father's wishes, Pedro (Roberto Sosa, Man on Fire), a naive kid from Mexico City, joins the Federal Highway Patrol. His simple desire to do good rapidly comes into conflict with the reality of police work in a lonely rural environment populated by poor farmers, rich drug dealers, beautiful women--and his father's ghost. The wonderful cast includes Bruno Bichir (Sicario: Day of the Soldado), Vanessa Bauche (Amores Perros), Ernesto Gomez Cruz (The Crime of Padre Amaro), Mike Moroff (From Dusk Till Dawn) and Pedro Armendariz Jr. (Once Upon a Time in Mexico).
