There was nothing like it when Alex Cox’s energetic, genre mashing debut burst onto the film scene in the mid-80s and there hasn’t really been anything like it since. Satirizing Reagan era America whilst indulging in gonzo fantasy plot twists, the film is littered with witty film parodies, larger than life characters and a great punk soundtrack. Young punk Otto becomes a repo man after helping to steal a car, and stumbles into a mind-blowing adventure involving knitting cops, CIA clones, UFO freaks and a radioactive chevy.
‘This unforgettable movie is not to be missed – though full of superb jokes, it has a weird integrity, something melancholy and serious, at its core that stays with you.’ Phillip Horne, The Telegraph
‘The real thing. It’s a sneakily rude, truly zany farce that treats its lunatic characters with a solemnity that perfectly matches the way in which they see themselves.’ Vincent Canby, The New York Times
