Michael Moore isn’t the only one whose getting into narratives concerning the nation’s economic troubles. We’ve got an exclusive look at a set of stills for Alex Cox’s Repo Chick, which premieres at the Venice Film Festival next week and looks to nothing to do with his 1984 film, Repo Man.

I won’t spoil the rest of plotline – the character is sent on some wacky pilgrimage out East, but this should unfold against the backdrop of the credit crunch and the subprime mortgage crisis in the US, where repossessions of homes, cars and other forms of property is at a new high. Spoiled rich girl Pixxi De La Chasse (Jacklyn Jonet from Cox’s Searchers 2.0) has been disinherited due to her irresponsible life.
