...the movie, more often than not, just comes off as strange for strangeness' sake.

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.

Half-shaggy, half-annihilating vision of a junk culture

Right up there with the 1980s cult classics like Heathers, Buckaroo Banzai, and Brazil.

A 1984 underground touchstone [that's] a creepy visitation from a fracturing society.

a western [but] also a punk road movie, a conspiratorial cold-war chase caper, a paranoid apocalypse sci-fi, a postmodern mixed "plate of shrimp", a hilarious Eighties satire and a wry lowlife rejoinder to Reagan's upwardly mobile American dream.

It was 1984 and Americans were on course to re-elect a s****y, sadistic, semi-sentient president. In a f****** landslide.

It's kind of a road movie and kind of a science fiction movie and kind of a look at those unsung heroes who repossess cars amid the haze of serious drug use.

Emilio and Cox topped out early with this dirty little postmodern classic.

Defiant, antisocial 'tude in '80s punk sci-fi satire.

Combustible Celluloid

Despite, or perhaps because of, being British, Cox [has] a great handle on America and L.A.; especially that great chase scene down those concrete water canals at some corner wasteland of the city.

It's a one of a kind anomaly with Emilio Estevez at his best.

There are endless things to enjoy, from Robby Müller's crisp camerawork to a superb set of performances, from witty movie parodies to a tremendous punk soundtrack.

Deadpan humor, throwaway visual jokes, and oblique political and social satire may have doomed this way-cool flick to the neverland of sci-fi cultdom.
