The Paul Cox Collection


The Paul Cox Collection


One of the most important filmmakers to come out of Australia, Paul Cox is an iconoclastic award-winning auteur who likes to tell “stories that cut to the very core of what it means to be human, movies about the weird and oddball, the gently mad,” (New York Times).

A heroic filmmaker of great gifts, and curiosity about everything he does – Roger Ebert

Whether dealing with love, faith, beauty or mortality, his sensitive, wry films reflect on the human condition. This collection comprises 13 features including his first, MY FIRST WIFE, the bittersweet romance CACTUS, starring Isabelle Huppert, and the “transcendent”, INNOCENCE about falling in love late in life. Documentaries include NIJINSKY, on the legendary dancer, and the acclaimed VINCENT: The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh.
