Death and the Compass, one of Cox's most ambitious, inspired and visually stunning films, is a deliciously dark adaptation of the short story by acclaimed Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges. In a totalitarian metropolis of the future (shot on location in Mexico City), Erik Lonnrot (Peter Boyle) is a gifted detective investigating a series of strange murders and disappearances that seem to implicate the insane crime lord Red Scarlach. Enlisting the help of Alonso Zunz (Christopher Eccleston), a principled journalist, Lonnrot believes that he has uncovered a labyrinthine occult conspiracy. However, has the investigator's brilliance merely precipitated his own destruction?
