Dir. Alex Cox (1987). For his first American studio film, Alex Cox launched a superbly scurrilous and daringly self-destructive attack on the Reagan regime's Central American policies (and the Monroe Doctrine as well). In his burlesque retelling the story of William Walker, 19th century "freebooter" who ruled Nicaragua, Cox refuses to recreate the pastor even dignify it.
