The life of a repo man is always intense.
Repo Man has the type of unerring energy that leaves audiences breathless and entertained..
In this clever punk comedy that revels in the bizarre, alienated Otto (Emilio Estevez) quits his soulless supermarket job and loses his girlfriend, eventually finding a form of salvation as an apprentice to career repo agent Bud (Harry Dean Stanton, in one of his quintessential roles).
Bolstered by some of the best comedic writing of the 80s, and a punk rock score featuring Iggy Pop, The Circle Jerks, and Black Flag, Alex Cox's directorial debut excoriates Los Angeles with playful rage.
It looks at the neon-lit, horizontal sprawl of Los Angeles in a way that no film had before, and a great deal of credit for the film's distinctive look goes to German cinematographer Robby Muller, who'd already distinguished himself via numerous collaborations with Wim Wenders.
Pre show will be music videos of songs featured in the movie.
