Midnights: REPO MAN
Friday, February 17 @ 11:55 pm
“Repo Man posits that sarcasm and a refusal to make the machinery of vile conservative governments work are far more important than godliness, which is as true in now as it was in 1984 and as it will be in a hundred years.” – Brooklyn Magazine
“It’s a film with nearly zero body fat, in a league with Star Wars or the Monty Python movies in its abundance of quotable lines.” – Sam McPheeters, Criterion
“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 EbertIn this send-up of Reagonomics and consumerism, a down and out young punk gets a job working with a seasoned repo man, but what awaits him in his new career is a series of outlandish adventures revolving around aliens, the CIA and a most wanted ’64 Chevy.
Dir. Alex Cox. 1984. 92 min.
