The introduction to X-Films: True Confessions of a Radical Filmmaker (Soft Skull Press, 304 pages, $17.95), an upcoming book about his experiences as a filmmaker, is only a few angry pen strokes shy of a screed, and his 1987 film Walker lampooned not very elegantly, really the 19th-century American mercenary William Walker's overthrow of the Nicaraguan government. Amongst Cox's movies, Three Businessmen, a 1998 love child of the gospel according to Luke and Luis Buñuel's The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972), presents the closest echoes of Waldo. Its characters share Waldo's aimless, profligate compliance with the dictates of modern capitalism.
And that's really what Waldo's Hawaiian Adventure is about, probably.
Would you finance that movie?
