Product Description

Spoiled rich girl Pixie De La Chasse has been disinherited by her family due to her numerous driving offences, her failure to get a job and her overall lack of responsibility. When her car gets repossessed, Pixie ends up getting hired by repo men Arizona Gray and Aguas and soon becomes the best repo chick around with the help of her entourage: punk grrrl confidante, model-looks bodyguard and flaming stylist.

While on the hunt for some antique railroad cars (which carry a million-dollar bounty reward but are also being sought by a secret government agency!), clueless Pixie ends up on a wacky train ride which is actually a plot by a terrorist organization. If their demands for the criminalization of golf are not met, then the train (which is carrying long-missing growler bombs from the Soviet Communist era!) is headed straight for downtown Los Angeles. It's up to Pixie De La Chasse to save LA!

SPECIAL FEATURES:

* DIRECTOR S COMMENTARY WITH ALEX COX.
* INTERVIEWS.

Review

A wacky blend of leftist, antiestablishment politics, eyesearing colors, outre costumes and manic overacting. --Variety

4.0 out of 5 stars Anti-Corporate Raspberry Chic 24 Jun 2010
By Brady Orme VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Ha ha, Alex Cox is a genius, a bona fide svengali when it comes to the World of Indie Film. Having met the man at a "Walker" / "Repo Man" Q&A at the Birmingham Film Festival (sadly no more) you could tell he has a real passion for film, and making sure his politics and ethos are firmly entrenched in the films he produces. "Repo Chick" is no exception as he proves yet again you don't need Rupert Murdoch or a money-haemorrhaging Hedge Fund to get art onto cinematic canvas.

The film is only a psuedo-reimagining-esque version of "Repo Man", the only things the two films have in common are a few actors (such as the mighty Miguel Sandoval and Del Zamora) and a plot with loose connections to the world of reposession of goods; Newcomer Jaclyn Jonet plays Pixxi De La Chasse, a spolit rich girl who becomes embroiled in the World of Repo... Manning? (tough use of words there)and chasing a train car around which turns out to be the front for a terrorist plot. Not very easy to put down on paper if you haven't seen the film itself, but that's hardly the most outstanding aspect of the film, rather it's aesthetic. Filmed on front of Green Screen with hilariously cheap and gaudy CGI backdrops has allowed the film to accrue a number of criticisms from the critical clique out there, and it does feel sometimes as if you're watching the cinematic equivalent of a 1992-era Amiga game, but that's hardly the point - Cox has kept the big-wigs out of his business and made a film his way by making it the way he has. Makes you think that mainstays like "Clerks" and "Reservoir Dogs" could look very different if made today, all CGI shop counters and computer-generated severed ears. Ouch.

Anyway, check out this slice of skewed pop-culture satire and pathos as soon as possible, in a country governed by the Tories we need someone to remind us that we actually do still have a pulse... And a strong one at that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly hilarious micro-budget micro-feature 27 May 2012
By Martin Turner HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
At under $200,000 budget, Alex Cox's loose sequel to the cult classic Repo Man qualifies for the term 'micro-feature', and, always game for a joke, Cox places it in what appears to be a world of miniatures. Aside from the title, the underlying subject matter (repossession of a high value vehicle with a weapons of mass destruction link), and a couple of the actors, there is no direct link to the earlier film. However, it deserves to be a classic in its own right, and if you like quirky, off-beat comedy, then this is one of the quirkiest, most off-beat films you'll ever see.

The premise is that Pixxi De La Chasse, spoiled heiress, is disinherited and has her vehicle repossessed. Her coterie encourage her to go into the repo trade, at which she proves to be surprisingly adept. When she tries to reconcile with her family, she learns that they have given away her inheritance. In revenge she gets their account hacked making them all penniless. In the mean time, she notices a $1m reward for the return of an antique train which is seen zipping along the tracks from time to time throughout the film.

If this doesn't sound too weird, then you need to realise that while all the human characters are 'real', they appear inside Hornby-style railways and other equipment. Cox has carefully shot the film to emphasise the miniatureness, using tilt-shift techniques to foreshorten the depth of field. This makes it look a lot like Bagpuss on speed, but more so. Add to that that Pixxi's entire entourage are very substantially beyond (if not larger than) life, and behave and dress as inappropriately to their situation as you could imagine.

4.0 out of 5 stars BIPARTISAN ALTERNATIVE 30 Aug 2014
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Pixxi (Jaclyn Jonet) a woman inspire by Paris Hilton must get a job or be disinherited. As she spirals downward she finally becomes a repo chick along with her strange entourage. While performing this task, she is thrust into a position where she must save LA and the world of golf.

All the characters in the film are quirky. The background for the film utilizes plastic models, giving the production a surreal cartoon, other dimension effect. The film is laced with political and cultural satire. I loved the billboard "Re-elect Supreme Court Justice..."

Not a film for everyone. Great for indie lovers, especially those who are tired of people confusing vegetarian with vegan.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repo Chick 7 April 2013
By Phil
Format:Blu-ray
Repo Chick is nowhere as good as Repo Man, Wish Alex Cox had got permission from Universal Pictures to do a proper sequel with Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton, not forgetting the other actors. The digital backgrounds were a distraction for me.
