  • 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

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

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

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

    5 stars out of 5 -- "Alex Cox has never bettered his feature debut, a brilliantly off-kilter thriller-of-sorts..."

    "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..."
