Repo Man (40th Anniversary Screening)

It’s 4 a.m. Do you know where your car is?

After losing his job and his girl, LA punk Otto is employed to repossess cars. Not only does he have to tangle with their irate owners, but he finds himself in the midst of a strange and crazy world. A very weird and wonderful debut feature from Alex Cox with a great punk soundtrack. With Harry Dean Stanton, Emilio Estevez, Olivia Barash, Jennifer Balgobin, Jimmy Buffet.

“Repo Man is, if nothing else, one of a kind. This mash-up of sci-fi, humor, and peculiarities, is a cult classic worthy of its following and influential in its intrinsically offset experience. It’s freak, and that’s a good thing.” (Film Inquiry)

“There are endless things to enjoy, from Robby Mller’s crisp camerawork to a superb set of performances, from witty movie parodies to a tremendous punk soundtrack.” (Time Out)

“‘Repo Man’ comes out of left field, has no big stars, didn’t cost much, takes chances, dares to be unconventional, is funny, and works. There is a lesson here.” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)
