Repo Man is one loopy, far out punk rock cult classic. Alex Cox is at the top of his game with Emilio Estevez delivering charming bad boy performance that stands up to the impeccable Harry Dean Stanton and Tracey Walter.
Estevez is a punk kid in Los Angeles who gets involved with a team of repossessers, alien conspiracies, brainwashing consumerism and the threat of nuclear war. It seems to have gotten made by a fluke–it was greenlighted and nearly didn't make it to theaters once the studio head honchos actually watched what a crazy, crazy film they'd produced and got a little scared.
It's an exciting, shoestring budget, non-linear, brave, silly, wild ride–one you really should take if you haven't seen it yet.
