Product Description

Arguably the defining cult film of the Reagan era, the feature debut of Alex Cox (Sid & Nancy, Walker, Straight to Hell) is a genre-busting mash-up of atomic-age science fiction, post-punk anarchism, and conspiracy paranoia, all shot through with heavy doses of deadpan humour and offbeat philosophy.

After quitting his dead-end supermarket job, young punk Otto (Emilio Estevez) is initiated as a "repo man" after a chance encounter with automobile repossessor Bud (Harry Dean Stanton). An illicit, high-voltage life follows, including an adrenalised search for a mysterious '64 Chevy Malibu loaded with radioactive and extragalactic cargo...

With an iconic soundtrack (Iggy Pop, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies), stunning Robby Müller cinematography, and iconoclastic direction, Repo Man remains one of the great debuts of the 1980s.

Voted by Entertainment Weekly as one of the top-ten best cult films ever, the Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present a definitive, director-approved Blu-ray on 20 February 2012.

From Amazon.co.uk

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-honour 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 the DVD edition.

Format: DVD
I grew up watching the fantastic BBC-TV programme 'Moviedrome', which was basically director Alex Cox introducing favourite films in his own quirky style including 'Something Wild','Carnival of Souls' & 'Django Kill!' I enjoyed Cox's own films, 'Sid and Nancy','Highway Patrolman' & the classic 'Walker' - but it's 'Repo Man' that remains my favourite work of his thus far...
The only film as odd as this to come out of a major Hollywood-studio was the same year's 'The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension'- which makes an ideal double-bill with this! 'Repo Man' is science-fiction, though science-fiction in a manner not unlike Jean-Luc Godard's 'Alphaville' (1965). As Godard's film used contemporary Paris as a future dystopia, so you get the feeling that Cox did the same to downtown-LA (the locale of its setting is often noted as an infleunce on 'Pulp Fiction', as well as Dennis Hopper's underrated 'Colors' & the charming 'Falling Down').
'Repo Man' offers an 80s-take on dystopia, a post-Reagonomic consumer-hell where dope-smoking baby-boomer parents are hypnotised by the TV, where nihilistic punks steal & where a strange man drives around with a neutron-bomb in the boot of his car, that the FBI are after as part of a wider UFO-conspiracy! Amid all this is Otto, your average punk-loser, who after his girlfriend cheats on him and he gets sacked from his supermarket job (note the way the products are labelled 'beer','london gin' etc- a conceit John Lydon nicked for PIL's 'Album' in 1986)- crossing paths with Bud (Harry Dean Stanton), who is a 'Repo Man'...

Format: DVD
I likened Repo Man to Mad Max, before I'd got the DVD, having seen it on TV years ago. "Coen bros. on acid", a friend commented.

It's so darned cool at times, the knowing, tongue-in-cheek mocking at consumerism and even road movies themselves, Repo Man oozes unsubtleties and the oft over-dramatic stoner sort of acting that just looks oafish and crass these days lift this late-night flick up to cult status.

I've enjoyed Alex Cox's wayward slant on the world for a long while and I want to see more and get more on DVD. Sid & Nancy is brilliantly hard-hitting, its no-holds barred attitude no doubt inviting the likes of Trainspotting. Mr Cox is so deliciously on the edge of mainstream cinema, you can almost smell his rawness and anger at that very fact. He doesn't belittle or bend to Hollywood norm to gain that, either. Almost unique, I'd say. He has also directed pop videos, the best I've seen is for The Levellers, more a pop-film, with a Dystopian "The Wall" sort of political rising, set on the wind-swept, deserted streets of Liverpool, that could only be, in the case of this band, absolutely political.

I'm a bit iffy about the whole sci-fi element in Repo Man, though. If I were also watching Twin Peaks then it might mean more, but as it is, is a bit clunky and distracting. Which may have been its intention, of course!

Format: DVD
A DVD version of this grossly underrated cult film is long overdue. I managed to get my hands on an advance copy last week & I've watched it four times since.
Anyone reading this review is probably a fan so I wont go into too much detail about what happens, but for those new to the film here is a rundown of the events: The story follows geeky no-hoper Otto, a disenfranchised teen punk in 1980's America who takes a job as a car repossessor because he's broke. He ends up on the trail of a Chevy Malibu along with a host of other irreverent & interesting characters, the very people who give this film it's deadpan humour.
The film is intended to reflect the feeling of loneliness and alienation that a whole generation of Americans suffered under the Reagan administration and it is a complete success. Director Alex Cox uses distant camerawork & large sets, along with bizzare country & Western style music to great effect.
Emilio Estevez is perfect for the role of Otto, he acts with a real flippancy that many actors would struggle with. He is completely believable as the obtrusive and uncaring repo man and he tackles the role with the neccessary lack of enthusiasm. It is Harry Dean Stanton though who steals the show as the bitter and strung out Bud, a time-seved Repo Man who takes Otto under his wing. The supporting cast also add to the experience and provide many a good gag.
The DVD extras are the reason that this doesnt get 5* here. I was dissappointed with what was on offer, but dont let that put you off what is a brilliant film experience.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
From a distance of a couple of decades, "Repo Man" remains a film with attitude: In part a portrait of gritty urban reality, in part a whacked-out fantasy - Emilio Estevez's Otto goes on a strange journey from street punk to car repossessor to discoverer of extra-terrestrial life. Harry Dean Stanton's hard-bitten portrayal of his senior partner in the repo business threatens to steal the film, but the tone is less "Taxi Driver" and more "Shaun Of The Dead", ordinary people being forced into extraordinary situations and actions with an often vicious and anarchic sense of humour thrown in for good measure.
