“Dares to be unconventional…gave me one of the biggest laughs I’ve had at the movies in a long time.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Combine space aliens, slackers, and deadbeats with a goofy jolt of magic realism and a 24-hour-party sensibility, and you get a rip-roaring cult movie rendered oddly poetic by the intuitive cinematography of Dutch master Robby Müller (PARIS, TEXAS). A kind of KISS ME DEADLY for the Eighties, REPO MAN follows young punk Otto (Estevez) and old repo hand Bud (Stanton), plus assorted men in black, in the quest for a hot ’64 Chevy Malibu with its apocalyptic cargo in the trunk. Music by The Plugz. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. 35mm. (BS)
