Three sentence movie reviews: Repo Man

Part of the Ruby Oliver Film Festival *

This has to be the most punk-rock movie I’ve ever seen as it refused to adhere to the conventional movie narrative.  Is it sci-fi, or action/adventure or biting social commentary?  It comes with a great soundtrack and will keep you interested.

Cost: free from library
Where watched:  at home.

*This movie is part of E. Lockheart’s list of top 10 movies and I’d be interested to hear why she likes it.

  1. I loved this movie when I was a teenager but I haven't seen it since then out of fear that it wouldn't stand the test of time. I hardly remember anything about it. One of the forums I read regularly, the people there hold up "Repo Man" as an all-time favorite, although they never really say why either.

  2. Very interesting. We have been reading a book by ISU prof. Brian Attebery (Stories About Stories) that has a section about describing genre. He talks about fuzzy sets in a genre and focuses on the difference in the (book) movie depending on which genre lens you use to view it.
