    REPO MAN is a cult classic for a reason. It found a niche audience that was interested in day-glow neon, punk rock, radioactivity, aliens, and general rebellious teen angst. There was a very limited time and place where all these factors conjoined and became semi-popular and relevant.

    Alex Cox was just the man to weave in and out of this sub-sub-sub culture. He understood the movement, as much as there was to understand at least. He blended all of these…

    Totally self-aware, cheesy eighties B-movie. And I fucking loved it.

    Repo Man is crazy, absurd, hilarious, immensely cinematic and nearly perfect. I won't pretend that this film has any great philosophical or spiritual depth, but it's still a brilliant punk rock/sci-fi/action/crime comedy that should be considered a classic. I don't think I have ever seen a movie like Repo Man, but it's extremely obvious how much of an influence it has had on the early work of directors like Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson.

    The main reason I loved…

    Apparently generic food labels actually did look like that in the 80s. Huh.

    Sporco e folle, Repo Man - Il recuperatore soffre assai le lungaggini di sceneggiatura. A volte si sorride, ma mena troppo il can per l'aia.

    An excellent Los Angeles film and a classic example of cult cinema. It has a dynamite punk rock soundtrack (that actually sold better than the film itself for a while) and it's story of a rookie Repo Man who gets sucked into a world of government cover ups and alien conspiracy captured my, and a generation's, imagination. You can see why it has developed a cult following given it's surreal, sometimes violent and often crude method of storytelling and I…

    Paced like a motherfucker; so much so that it's the rare film that I wish were longer so that it could just take a chill pill and breathe for a second or so. So stuffed with ambition and inventiveness that it threatens to collapse on itself at any moment, this is just a further testament to the genius of Harry Dean Stanton.

    I had received wrong information about this beforehand, but that only accounts for one of the levels of bafflement I got from learning this was directed by a trained film student. It feels like a one-and-done, a passion project from somebody whose love of the material is supposedly going to make up for the inexperience. A lot of stuff here feels genuine, like the moments when Otto fucks up while trying to be cool (driving into garbage while trying to…
