Overview

Otto (Emilio Estevez) is a Los Angeles punk, a loser with no direction and no role models. But he discovers a code of honor and higher purpose when he joins a select group of latter-day knights: the repo men. As a fledging apprentice, Otto slowly learns the ways of these high-caliber, overmedicated auto repossessors. And when a $20,000 bounty is placed on a mysterious missing car, Otto eludes the police, feds, religious cultists, and other repo men in a frantic search for this holy grail. Could one man's destiny lie in the back of a 1964 Chevy Malibu? Alex Cox's feature-film debut boasts a clever, satirical script that combines the larger-than-life edginess of urban L.A. with a bizarre array of science-fiction conspiracy theories. The film also features a strong soundtrack by an array of early 1980s punk and new wave bands and a terrific lead performance by Estevez.
This cult classic, the debut film by maverick director Alex Cox, stars Emilio Estevez as a young Los Angeles punker named Otto. Bored and directionless, Otto becomes the protégé of a deranged car repossessor and soon matches his mentor in skill. They compete for a bizarre repo prize--a '64 Chevy Malibu driven by a lobotomized nuclear scientist. A unique, masterful blend of blue-collar character bits, satirical conspiracy theories, and edgy science fiction make for an entertaining treat.

Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times 04-14-2013 "The desolate Los Angeles streets are characters, much as they were in noir features of the '40s and '50s."
New York Times 07-06-1984 "...[REPO MAN] is the real thing. It's a sneakily rude, truly zany farce that treats its lunatic characters with a solmenity that perfectly matches the way in which they see themselves..."
Sight and Sound 03-01-2012 "Alex Cox's debut feature fizzes with playful visual ideas and meta-movie gags of the kind Tarantino would adopt a decade or so later..."
