    The first MOTW from my long lost Dissolve, and man, was this a great film to start things up with.

    "You ever feel as if your mind had started to erode?"
    After this film, I'm going to say yes. Repo Man is a gloriously insouciant odyssey through a Los Angeles where men in white hazmat suits kidnap homeless men, and no one bats an eye– in other words, it's Los Angeles.

    It deserves a rewatch because I don't know exactly what I just saw. It's a total mind fuck, with no apparent cohesion. Nevertheless, the ride through it is fun and I like the sense of nothing makes sense, anything could happen.

    This is a somewhat difficult one for me to explain. All I can really say is: I enjoy it immensely, Emilio Estevez is great, and it is one of the more unique films you'll ever watch. A real blend of movie genres. Go for it.

    And the soundtrack is GREAT

    Punk rock, theft, aliens and perhaps the most seething satire of 1980s America, Repo Man handedly lives up to its cult status. It's brilliance on film.

    Pure comedy gold

    Every July, Barnes and Noble does their annual 50% off sale for Criterion Collection titles. This year I limited myself to two films, being that last year I splurged on about eight. One of those films, DON'T LOOK NOW, was an unequivocal masterpiece that I had seen before. The other, Alex Cox' 1984 low budget punk sci-fi movie, REPO MAN, I had never seen.

    I remember my dad watching REPO MAN on VHS, but not letting me see it because…

    Like a Dead Kennedys song. Weird, irreverent, petulant, foul and unlike anything else.

    A scuzzy, neon-lit dystopian dream. This is the punk version of the wild west, where morals take a back seat to survival. Don't focus on the acting, don't focus on the dialogue ("Let's do crimes"), just strap in and go on this ride.

    Miller (Tracey Walter): A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one,…
