suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

Ever been to Utah? Ra-di-a-tion. Yes, indeed. You hear the most outrageous lies about it. Half-baked goggle-box do-gooders telling everybody it's bad for you. Pernicious nonsense. Everybody could stand a hundred chest X-rays a year. They ought to have them, too. When they canceled the project it almost did me in. One day my mind was full to bursting. The next day - nothing. Swept away. But I'll show them. I had a lobotomy in the end.

Lobotomy? Isn't that for loonies?

Not at all. Friend of mine had one. Designer of the neutron bomb. You ever hear of the neutron bomb? Destroys people -- leaves buildings standing. Fits in a suitcase. It's so small, no one knows it's there until -- BLAMMO. Eyes melt, skin explodes, everybody dead. So immoral, working on the thing can drive you mad. That's what happened to this friend of mine. So he had a lobotomy. Now he's well again.

The Wired Repo Man: He’s Not ‘As Seen on TV’

Brian Mason, chief executive of Seven Star Recovery Services, which operates primarily in Orange County, Calif., found a wanted car in MVTRAC’s database while driving on Interstate 5. When his computer matched the plate with the list of wanted vehicles, the ka-ching sound of a vintage cash register rang out. Mr. Mason followed the driver home, where he handed over the car.

Part of the reason it's so good still! It's like John Waters trashing hippies in the early seventies even though that was his audience.

i totally saw this for the first time like a year or so ago with a few friends, it went about like gbx's reaction above. since then we've made a few other ppl watch it with us and they've all been like 'idk it's pretty alright' so i'm glad there are so many others to validate my stance!

i can't imagine anyone feeling ambivalent toward repo man. seems like a love-it-or-hate-it film.

Daniel, Esq., Sunday, 27 June 2010 00:15 (4 years ago) Permalink

i dunno i think if you don't really latch on to the dialogue i could see ppl thinking the movie was just a bunch of meh/kinda weird things that happened.

Punkrock Emilio = the coolest Emilio imo.

Miller: John Wayne was a fag.
All: The hell he was.
Miller: He was, too, you boys. I installed two-way mirrors in his pad in Brentwood, and he come to the door in a dress.

i saw this a few years ago and thought it was OK. i was watching it with friends and there was a lot of talking and drinking, so i really didn't give it the attention it deserved.

gave it another go this past week and i really fucking loved it. so many great little jokes and moments. endlessly quotable, awesome soundtrack, beautiful ending. i foresee this becoming a favorite.

"ah, excuse me while i fold my pants."

such a great sense of place too. i don't personally know what 1980's LA was like, but this really feels right.

Over-rated. Alex Cox - the indie Micheal Winner (in terms of quality of film only, not table manners etc).

I think I've found the stupidest thing I've ever written on this site. "The indie Michael Winner"??? I don't even. This is an amazing film.

This is coincidence on the level of the script mechanics -- this fellow came up in discussion on the DVD commentary for the film, which I relistened to last night, and today his obit runs:

http://www.latimes.com/news/obituaries/la-me-sam-cohen-20101202,0,7039951.story

It was either Cox or Nesmith talking about how they ended up having lunch with him at some point well after the film was made, and apparently Cohen's two favorite films were Dr. Strangelove and, indeed, Repo Man.

serious stealth poignancy on:

- There had to be a time when there was no people, right? Well, where did all these people come from? I'll tell you where. The future. And where did all these people disappear to?

- The past?

- That's right! And how did they get there?

- How the fuck do I know?

- Flying saucers! Which are also? Time machines!

Watched this recently for the first time since i was a teenager and was worried it wouldn't hold up but it's still pretty awesome.

does this movie beat Airplane! for quotability density?

Philip Nunez, Monday, 10 January 2011 19:45 (3 years ago) Permalink

oh that's tough. Airplane is like every single line quotable. Repo Man definitely up there but I dunno about beating it.

Oh, I'm aware that it was filmed and physically exists and all that, but as someone who's seen the original literally dozens of times, burned out at least two copies of the soundtrack on cassette, owns the DVD, etc., etc., THERE IS NO SUCH FILM AS "REPO CHICK."

lol, sorry. Right there with you.

it looks sort of terrifying

I was just singing "Feelin' 7-Up" today and smiling about the movie, and then... this.
