REPO MAN (1984)

 

 

A giant middle finger to the 80s at 24 frames per second. Universal Pictures had no idea what the hell this piece of wonderment was so they essentially dumped it in a small number of cities (in part because the soundtrack was so popular) which probably ended up doing the film a favor by giving birth to its cult bona fides. This flick is a classic; it raises the flag of punk and punches the audience with a fistful of attitude and oddity. Alex Cox is a true outlaw filmmaker and this is his masterpiece. Put your seatbelt on, boy.

 

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
