Criterion at its best

  • Summary: While "Repo Man" is often considered a classic of 80s B-movies, I never really cared for it.
  • Pros: Criterion pulls out all the stops with some of the best artwork and packaging every lavished on an 80s film.
  • Cons: The movie itself is not great. Basically a cheesy 80s punk-fest.

User Review

madeleine, Metacritic
11 January 2013
  • Summary: Almost perfect. Characters which are fully realised but incomprehensible, like real people. Shops which are presciently full of 'chips', 'beer' and so on. Aliens, punks and big 'ole cars. And most of all, Harry Dean Stanton. Watch it!

  • Pros: extras, back story, cult film, smart story, nostalgic movie
