Arlo & Esme 42 E. 1st street (between 1st & 2nd ave)

Repo Man (1984)

Police Officer: “Whatcha got in the trunk?”

Driver: “Oh…you don’t want to look in there”

In the final scene of the film, Otto (Emilio Estevez) is faced with the ultimate dilemma; the girlfriend, or a radioactive 1964 Chevy Malibu that has already killed or maimed most of the cast. He makes the only logical choice…

Leila: “But Otto, what about our relationship?”

Otto: “Fuck That!”

“The more you drive, the less intelligent you are”

The Plot: Frustrated punk rocker Otto (Emilio Estevez) gets fired from his supermarket job after slugging a co-worker (Zander Schloss), and is later dumped by his girlfriend (Jennifer Delgobin) at a party.

Wandering the streets in frustration, he is recruited in the repossession of a car by a repo agent (Harry Dean Stanton). After discovering his parents have donated his college fund to a televangelist, he joins the repossession agency (Helping Hand Acceptance Corporation) as an apprentice repo man.

During his training, he is introduced into the mercenary and paranoid world of the drivers, befriended by a UFO conspiracy theorist (Olivia Barash), confronted by rival repo agents (Eddie Velez, & Del Zamora), discovers some of his friends have turned to a life of crime, is lectured to about cosmic unconsciousness by the repo agency grounds worker (Tracey Walter), and finds himself entangled in a web of intrigue concerning a huge repossession bounty on a 1964 Chevy Malibu driven by a lunatic government scientist (Fox Harris), with top secret cargo in the trunk…http://www.repomanfilm.com/

    This film a real cult classic.
    Full of obtuse yet pertinent and ironic observations on life. Delightful throw-aways every one !
    To the gun-toting criminal Punk girl, now pregnant and deciding to settle down-’Well it seems to be what people do’
    On John Wayne-’Hell, wearing a dress don’t make you a fag’!
    Just grab a plate of shrimp and enjoy the ride !
    ( Just watch the film and all will be revealed !!!)
