Product Description

Product Description

Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton star as "repo men" who get caught up in a series of bizarre adventures involving G-men, a nuclear scientist, UFO cultists and revolutionaries. Put your seat belt on and enjoy the wild ride in this groundbreaking, punk-rock, sci-fi black comedy with all-new bonus materials!

Amazon.ca

A volatile, toxic potion of satire and nihilism, road movie and science fiction, violence and comedy, the unclassifiable sensibility of Alex Cox's Repo Man is the model and inspiration for a potent strain of post-punk American comedy that includes not only Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction), but also early Coen brothers (Raising Arizona, in particular), Men in Black, and even (in a weird way) The X-Files. Otto, a baby-face punk played by Emilio Estevez, becomes an apprentice to Bud (Harry Dean Stanton), a coke-snorting, veteran repo-man-of-honor prowling the streets of a Los Angeles wasteland populated by hoods, wackos, burnouts, conspiracy theorists, and aliens of every stripe. It may seem chaotic at first glance, but there's a "latticework of coincidence" (as Tracey Walter puts it) underlying everything. Repo Man is a key American movie of the 1980s--just as Taxi Driver, Nashville, and Chinatown are key American movies of the '70s. With a scorching soundtrack that features Iggy Pop, Fear, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and Suicidal Tendencies. --Jim Emerson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This movie laid the groundwork for all the warped and far fetched movies like Back To The Future, Weird Science, Pulp Fiction and Hot Tub Time Machine et al to follow. Yet, there's such a tone of seriousness and great dialog in this movie, it stands out on it's own to this day. Bordering on a John Hughes coming of age romp, to an almost Herzog or Wenders thought provoking diatribe of purpose and place. I think 'Monkee Man' Mike Nesmith somehow kept Alex Cox in a more focused line for this film, though it's somewhat hard to tell. And performances by Stanton, Tracey Walter, Sy Richardson, et al really keep it on the ground (even when things go up in the air!) Criterion did a great job with the packaging and bonus materials as well. All one needs to know about this film, the neutron bomb, and Harry Dean Stanton (Not sure which is worse on learning with those two? LOL) Some say it's just a punk rock film, others say sci-fi, and many just say juvenile fantasy. It's all that, and more. in a word, it's 'precedence'.

Alex Cox (Sid & Nancy) made his directorial debut with this bombastic, abrasive, satiric, and highly influential film. Repo Man tells the story of disgruntled punk rocker Otto (a young Emilio Estevez) who becomes a repo man under the tutilage of veteran repo man Bud (Harry Dean Stanton). Soon Otto becomes quite good at his job, but a mysterious '64 Chevy Malibu soon becomes sought after by Otto and a some rival repo men when a high priced commission is put on it. What's in the car's trunk will change everything, and I mean everything. One of the key films of the 80's, Repo Man is undoubtadly the best piece of work to come from Alex Cox, and even though it may seem chaotic and even a bit incoherent at times, there is an underlining theme to the film that links to the political uneasiness felt during the 80's. The scorching punk soundtrack features legends like Black Flag, Iggy Pop, and the Suicidal Tendencies; all of which add to the bombastic feel of the film. Universal's recent re-release of Repo Man surprisingly includes the commentary by Cox and various crew members (which was previously only available on Anchor Bay's Limited Edition release of the film which has been out of print) as well as a trailer. This is surprising to me considering every one of Universal's recently re-released films like They Live and Prince of Darkness have no extras at all. All in all, I strongly suggest picking up Repo Man, it's something you won't regret or forget.

Repo Man is a twisted movie, which blends social satire, sci-fi, suburban angst and consumerism targets that were prominent in the 1980s, such as TV preachers, people who claimed to see UFOs, and angry punk rockers rebelling against the gamor of the decade. Emilio Estevez plays a nihilistic young male out of a job and practically robbed of a future when his parents, apparently hippies or born-again Christians, give all of his savings away to a TV preacher so they can 'send bibles to El Salvador,' according to the holy mission of this evangelist that appears in the movie often. He meets up w/ Bud, who offers him [money]to move his wife's car out of a 'bad area,' presumably a ghetto. After the chaotic scene, Otto (Estevez's character)knew something was up, and gets dragged into becoming a 'repo man,' a guy that repossesses cars when the owners do not pay their bills.
The company, among other parties, such as eccentric UFO spotters, and the Rodriguez brothers, are after this one car driven by a lobotomized scientist which contains some alien device of some sort in its trunk that disintegrates those who come in cotact with it, such as a highway patroman and one of Otto's punk rock anarchist friends. The movie consists of nothing but chaos throughout the plot in which all the groups invovled try to get hold of this []Chavrolet Malibu, and the ending is rather surprisng, but very cheesy at the same time. The sci-fi effects in this movie are dated, and scream 80s (after all this movie was made in 1984), but its satirical edge and rather cryptic storyline make Repo Man an interesting, but occassionally bewildering film.

This is not your basic repo man movie. This is the archetypal film by which the entire repo man mythology will be forever measured...and pale in comparison. Harry Dean Stanton plays omniscient, coke-snorting Bud...MASTER of the CODE...who is guardian and purveyor of the REPO MAN ARCANA. Emilio Estevez essays the heroic initiate's role of Otto. As appealing as the role could have been, Otto is presented as a smart-ass punk characterized by RUDE and SEXIST macho. HE IS THE REPO MAN. An irradiated Chevy Malibu driven by a lobotomized Los Alamos aggie summons The Budster and Otto to the ultimate Repo Man Quest. Various ordeals and dangers confront them in the form of X-FILE-like agents, soul-mate punkers and the muy feo Rodriguez brothers. To reveal too much about this cult classic would be too much other than to state: THE TRUTH IS IN THE TRUNK. Production values, FX and Sid Vicious-ilk sound track are worthily strewn about creating an aura of very Mad Max, Pee Wee Herman and Revenge of the Three Stooges minus One. REPO MAN is a meretricious epic, inane and astutely goofy. It is bad enough to be BAD and good. 5 Stars? Don't let Cox kid you...remember the CODE.
