  • Plot Summary: This comedy/western/musical is perhaps the strangest film by cult writer-director Alex Cox. After a botched robbery, a band of thieves heads for the desert to take shelter, only to find that the wilderness hamlet into which they've stumbled is run by a murderous, incestuous clan of coffee addicts who are struggling for control against a small band of misfits and a greedy land developer. It all makes for weird, weird stuff, highlighted by a spontaneous song-and-dance production number and cameos from such punk luminaries as Elvis Costello (as a coffee-dispensing butler) and the Pogues (as three brain-dead caballeros).
