  • 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[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..."
    New York Times

    "...REPO MAN has the type of unerring energy that leaves audiences breathless and entertained..."
    Variety

    "Estevez chases a 1964 Chevy Malibu from outer space in punk auteur Alex Cox's comic sci-fi satire." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "One giant nihilism-smothered sickly grin, the film depicts an otherworldly Los Angeles subculture in the time of Reagan and nuclear fear."
    Rolling Stone
