Alex Cox's 1984 film 'Repo Man'

11th Oct 2017 - Repo Man

“I saw ‘Repo Man’ near the end of a busy stretch on the movie beat: Three days during which I saw more relentlessly bad movies than during any comparable period in memory. Most of those bad movies were so cynically constructed out of formula ideas and ‘commercial’ ingredients that watching them was an ordeal. ‘Repo Man’ comes out of left field, has no big stars, didn’t cost much, takes chances, dares to be unconventional, is funny, and works. There is a lesson here.” Roger Ebert 1984
