The five best scenes from Repo Man, an Alex Cox cult classic
Only an asshole gets killed for a car (the Repo Code).
The International Film Series at the University of Colorado in Boulder will show a series of films by director Alex Cox over the next few weeks; Cox teaches screenwriting and film production at the school. And while all of his movies, like Sid & Nancy and Three Businessmen, have their fans and carry a certain cachet, Repo Man stands alone.
That movie, starring Emilio Estevez and Harry Dean Stanton, is about repo men, aliens, punks, cars, society and, well, shrimp. It airs tomorrow, September 14, at 7 p.m.; tickets are $6.
Here are our favorite scenes:
John Wayne was a fag. He was, too, you boys.
Feeling 7-Up. It's a crisp, refreshing feeling, crystal clear and light!
I blame society. Society made me what I am.
Suppose you're thinking about a plate of shrimp. Suddenly, someone will say, like, plate or shrimp or plate of shrimp, out of the blue, no explanation.
