"It's a quirky film, extremely profane and violent a respite from reverential sigh-fi. It's like visiting the bus depot late at night, and finding you kind of like it  Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"One of the most original films of recent memory, with an edge of black humor and punk sensibility and wickedly funny, ceaselessly inventive, and never boring.  T.V. Guide

Editor's Note
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.

Plot Summary
This cult classic, the debut film by maverick director Alex Cox, stars Emilio Estevez as a young Los Angeles punker named Otto. Bored and directionless, Otto becomes the protégé of a deranged car repossessor and soon matches his mentor in skill. They compete for a bizarre repo prize--a '64 Chevy Malibu driven by a lobotomized nuclear scientist. A unique, masterful blend of blue-collar character bits, satirical conspiracy theories, and edgy science fiction make for an entertaining treat.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...[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..." 07/06/1984 p.C8

Variety
"...REPO MAN has the type of unerring energy that leaves audiences breathless and entertained..." 03/07/1984

Entertainment Weekly
"Estevez chases a 1964 Chevy Malibu from outer space in punk auteur Alex Cox's comic sci-fi satire." -- Grade: B 02/03/2006 p.61

Rolling Stone
"One giant nihilism-smothered sickly grin, the film depicts an otherworldly Los Angeles subculture in the time of Reagan and nuclear fear." 02/09/2006 p.70

Uncut
5 stars out of 5 -- "Alex Cox has never bettered his feature debut, a brilliantly off-kilter thriller-of-sorts..." 03/01/2012

Sight and Sound
"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..." 03/01/2012

Variety 8 of 10
Repo Man has the type of unerring energy that leaves audiences breathless and entertained. While the title, referring to the people who repossess cars from those behind on their payments, might suggest a low-budget, gritty, realistic venture, the truth exists somewhat on the other end of the spectrum....

Chicago Reader 8 of 10
Alex Cox's 1984 punk comedy is set in a rotting Los Angeles, where a disaffected adolescent Emilio Estevez finds an outlet for his aggression and an answer to his boredom in an apprenticeship with a professional car repossessor Harry Dean Stanton. Cox's style is a step beyond camp into a comedy of pure disgust; much of the film is churlishly unpleasant, but there's a core of genuine anger that gives the project an emotional validation lacking in the flabby American comedies of the early 80s. The narration seems deliberately crude and jerky, as if the nihilism of the tale had infected its telling, and there's an unfortunate late turn into science fiction spoofiness. But Stanton, strange and wonderful, bridges it all with his uncrackable conviction.
