Self-borrowed. Figured I would take the opportunity to answer a question in the form of a review.
...so little time.
Repo Man (1984)
starring Emilio Estevez is one of many films that best reflects popular
culture in this country. The "cult classic" film chronicles the events
of an angry young man, Otto, who becomes a repo man. There is much more
to the story and the goings on around Otto than the simple repossession
of cars. The film is a commentary on the state of the world, American
youth, growing up in America, drug use, nuclear science, war, UFOs, and
the collective unconscious. The mixture of these themes set upon the
black-comedy-science-fiction backdrop of automotive repossession and
punk rock music not only results in an amazing piece of entertainment
but also a reflection of culture that remains relevant in the cultural
climate of today. A culture in which many physical attributes have
changed drastically, but continues to be rooted in issues, conflicts,
and identities that have changed very little since 1984.
Put that on the back of your box and smoke it.
