STARRING: Emilio Estevez, Harry Dean Stanton, Vonetta McGee, Olivia Barash, Sy Richardson, Tracey Walter, Susan Barnes, Fox Harris, The Circle Jerks

1984, 92 Minutes, Directed by: Alex Cox

Description: 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.

Cult movie about a punk (Emilio Estevez) who makes a living repossessing cars. A skilful blend of science fiction and social satire, Repo Man is pure weirdo fun. See it!


Sci-Fi Movie Page Pick: Weird and off-beat are the adjectives that spring to mind when watching this flick that features street punks, mad scientists, repo men, stolen Chevies, mad scientists and flying saucers.
