Multiple plot strands at first seem unrelated, but bind together closer and tighter as the film moves along. Otto and the other Repo Men are on the lookout for a 1964 Chevy Malibu, with a $25,000 bounty. So are some creepy FBI agents, who stalk and kidnap Otto. And so are Helping Hand's arch-rivals, who careen into the plot whenever things are getting dull. The car's driven by a nuclear physicist in from Los Alamos, who warned a CHP officer not to look in the trunk (with deadly results). Otto's punk friends find the car while breaking into a pharmaceutical factory, but they're too stupid to keep it.Read more ›
What makes Repo Man so unique is the obvious satirization not only of regular, and in this case conservative Reagean-esque, culture, from the "John Wayne was [gay]" speech to Bud's trashing of Russia, but the send-ups of punk culture (Let's go do some crimes! Yeah, let's get sushi and not pay!Read more ›
On to the Special Edition Packaging.
The first thing you have to do is LOWER your expectations. It comes in this cheezy metal box, like a holiday cookie tin. The lid has a graphic of a California license plate that says appropriately enough Repo Man, and Oct 2002 where the date goes on a license plate. It is not embossed or anything that might make it cool. The rest of the box is unremarkable. On the unpainted bottom is a sticker saying what number you have in the limited edition. I have 08512/30000, it is just a sticker.
Inside the disapointments continue. The 24 page book is a minimilist tribute to a great film. There is not very much information of interest, and only a few good photos. You don't need these photos if you have movie. Then there is a 5x7" postcard of the movie poster with chapter info on the back. The dvd and the cd come in 2 disc cd case with no cover. Just a dvd with part of the movie poster silkscreened on it. and the cd with
the 11 original sound track songs on it. Time, >38 minutes. There is no individual packaging for either.
There is nothing in the packaging that makes this special.
The picture quality is excellent. The sound quality is excellent.
There are little to no extras on the disc. This get frustrating as one version of the trailers shows a snippet of a scene where Bud (Harry Dean Stanton) is beating the hell out of some phone boths with a sledgehammer. In another snippet from the same trailer the repo wives look like the may be at the office, or something that is not in the film. Yet, the extras have NO extended scenes or deleted scenes. To make matters worse the commentary discusses a made for t.v.Read more ›

One of the best movies of all time. In fact, it's the most punk film ever. Nothing compares to the feeling of this existential punk scifi comedy satire. Read morePublished 23 days ago by David Bradshaw
This movie was the "Wizard of Oz" to my punk years in the early to mid 1980's! It seems to have borrowed slightly from 1955's "Kiss Me Deadly" ( I won't say what)... Read morePublished 1 month ago by M. Ballantine
