    Finally got the Criterion Blu Ray. :) Watching Repo Man a second time, I loved it even more and picked up on all the references to the first half of the movie that show up in the last 20 mins. I wonder if Edgar Wright's seen this movie, because I was reminded of how he does the same in all his movies.

    This one gets better with each year that goes by. Mandatory re-watch before INHERENT VICE proved a wise move per PTA's suggestion.

    Still an unassailable piece of cult filmmaking, and this viewing really drove home just how strong and unique Cox's screenplay is. Like good punk rock, the distortion and unwieldy nature hide just how much talent it takes to pull it all together.

    My review -- this film is now on DVD and sadly it does have a minus of roughly $31,000 to its name now usually I wouldn't put this small figure down but when the budget was only $160,000 I don't really have much option to not say anything about it. The plot is as follows roughly, the viewers meet Otto a rebellious 21-year-old man that will happily give his employers the middle finger, but one day he accidentally finds himself…

    Shockingly, one of the strongest examples of social satire within Alex Cox's Repo Man came about by accident. The generically labeled food products ("Food," "Beer," "Drink") that populate this world's grocery and convenience stores, suggesting the bland, conformist nature of American products, were included because the filmmakers could not lure any advertisers.

    Happenstance of the sort seems to litter Repo Man, a Coxian pastiche of society's flaws, primary among them the apathy to give in to regiment. Otto's brain dead,…

    "Speed, huh?"

    This film could very well be in my top ten favorite movies of all time. It's like someone with a ton of hindsight back in 1984 made a movie specifically for me. Actually, the feeling that this movie was made just for me may be my biggest gripe about it, because I want nothing more than to show Repo Man to everyone I know so we can quote lines like "Ordinary fucking people, I hate 'em" and "Let's…

    I've noticed I tend to hand out five star ratings pretty liberally. But I can't argue with how much fun I just had. Repo Man is so witty, so campy, so ridiculously fun, so defiantly itself; I never wanted it to end.

    "The life of a repo man is always intense!"

    Un Chevrolet Malibu atraviesa a toda velocidad una solitaria carretera en el desierto de Nuevo México. El conductor tiene una extraña expresión enajenada en el rostro. Un agente de policía escondido entre unos cactus no tarda en reaccionar y se pone a seguirlo de inmediato en su Guzzi. Pronto lo alcanza y lo hace detenerse en el arcén. El policía se acerca al conductor del vehículo, que no parece muy impresionado. Parece, de hecho, que todo aquello le divierte. "¿Qué…

    Entertaining Sci Fi comedy, Repo Man is an interesting picture that boasts some good performances, a good story and effective direction that is steadily paced in order to tell a memorable story. The film has an interesting look, a sort of dystopian atmosphere that makes the film unique. The performances are quite good as well, and Emilio Estevez is perfect for the role. Repo Man is one of the more famous cult films of the 80’s, and watching it, you…
