Repo Man (1984)

Alex Cox directs Emilio Estevez, Harry Dean Stanton and Tracey Walter in this sci-fi satire where a new repo man is shown the ropes by an old hand with his own philosophy… meanwhile a car makes their list with something extra-terrestrial in the boot.

It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World meets Kiss Me Deadly meets a Warren Oates movie. Iggy Pop theme tune that shreds. About as punk as any studio released movies ever got. It isn’t particularly well made but if someone told you it was their all time favourite you wouldn’t blink an eye. There’s just something about the energy and the attitude that puts it ahead of slicker, more crafted productions of its time. “Look at those assholes, ordinary fucking people. I hate ’em.”
