The cult classic from 1984, Repo Man is a dark, post-apocalyptic comedy thriller centred on two car repossession men making fast bucks in the seamy, seedy LA underworld. Otto (Emilio Estevez - The Breakfast Club) is an alienated punk wandering the LA streets before a coke-sniffing Bud (Harry Dean Stanton - Paris, Texas), an aging repossession man, offers him money to drive a car out of a bad neighbourhood. Soon enough, Otto is earning big money under Bud's tutelage but their latest repo job lands them in hot water when a nuclear physicist leaves something toxic - a nuclear device, an alien? - in the trunk of a 1964 Chevy... As the acerbic Bud advises his apprentice: ''A repo man's life is always intense.'' Well remembered for its bizarre, eccentric characters and dystopic vision of America, director Alex Cox's (Sid and Nancy - 1986) fresh and darkly humorous urban fable is rounded out by a classic theme song from Iggy Pop.
