REPO MAN (1984) Criterion Collection
Director: Alex Cox
Cast: o.a. Emilio Estevez, Harry Dean stanton
Essential cult film of the 1980s. Alex Cox’s sci-fi comedy stars Harry Dean Stanton as a repo man in a desolate Los Angeles, and Emilio Estevez as the nihilistic middle-class punk he takes under his wing. The job becomes more than either of them bargained for when they get involved in repossessing a mysterious Chevy Malibu with a big reward attached to it. Featuring the ultimate early eighties L.A. punk soundtrack, this hilarious odyssey is also a politically trenchant take on President Reagan’s domestic and foreign policies.
Great film. Cult Classic.
This is one from the superb Criterion Collection.
