Frustrated punk rocker Otto quits his supermarket job after slugging a co-worker, and is later dumped by his girlfriend at a party. Wandering the streets in frustration, he is recruited in the repossession of a car by a repo agent. 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, confronted by rival repo agents, discovers some of his one-time friends have turned to a life of crime, is lectured to near cosmic unconsciousness by the repo agency grounds worker, 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, with Top Secret cargo in the trunk.

This is the film that basically defined "cult film" for the 80s, hitting almost every important pop-cultural touchstone that would inform "alternative culture" for the next 10-15 years (TV evangelists, space aliens, punk rock, drug-addled gangsters, etc). All that's missing is an appearance by Elvis Presley. Its style and mannerisms have been aped so frequently (and thoroughly) in everything from the sublime (the Simpsons) to the idiotic (3rd Rock From The Sun, etc, etc, etc.) that it's hard to remember sometimes just how completely out of left field this was when it first appeared. In a way, it reminds me of how "Saturday Night Live" suddenly defined a whole new kind of comedy when it first appeared in 1975.

The good news is that the movie still looks as fresh and unique today as it did when it came out, and it will still make you laugh out loud. One of the few movies that truly deserves the overused adjectives "original" and "seminal", "Repo Man" is one of the most influential and enjoyable movies ever made.
